Genesis: The Epic Story of Beginnings
Pastor Richard is teaching a new Bible study on the book of beginnings: Genesis. Pastor Richard will discuss the purpose, meaning, and relevance of this ancient dramatic story we know as Genesis. When one understands Genesis as an ancient story, written at a particular time to a particular people, it opens up possibilities in one’s life and allows one to see the story in a universally refreshing new light. There’s a reason Genesis is the first book of the larger story we call the Bible.
