Some thoughts on Name Calling and the Importance of Community

September 11, 2019

There is so much that can be said when reflecting on the creation stories of Genesis.  This particular message focuses on Adam and the authority given him to name the animals.  He was given the power to do so.  We still name things, and people, and there is still power found in our doing so.  We ought to wield this power carefully.  The other focus of this message is on the importance of community.  It was not good that Adam was alone.  The same is true for us.  Not that all need to be married but God does invites all to be a part of God centered community.  That, in fact, is where we are meant to be.
