CREATION OF WOMAN
The Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.”
(Genesis 2:21-23)

NUGGETTS:
We were created in the image of the Triune God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) we are triune creatures we are Spirit, Soul and body.
We were created perfect, because God is perfect
We were created to be in relationship with God because we are Spirit and need relationship with a Spirit God.

CLOSING PRAYER: Heavenly Father God of creation, forgive our moments of ingratitude from appreciating the wonder that is this world, the endless cycle of nature, of life and death and rebirth.
Forgive us for taking without giving, reaping without sowing.
Open our eyes to see, our lips to praise and our hands to share.
May our feet tread lightly on the path we tread and our footsteps be worthy of following, for they lead to you.
