First Sunday of Lent 2017 – Genesis 2:15

Monday, February 27, 2017

This is the last week I will be posting on this blog.  My blog is moving to Church Health’s website.  I hope you choose to follow me there.  I will continue to share my blog on Facebook and Twitter.

Lent begins this week with Ash Wednesday.  Our passages for this first Sunday of Lent offer the following four scriptures from the lectionary: Genesis 2:15-17, 3:1-7; Psalm 32; Romans 5:12-19 and Matthew 4:1-11.

Genesis 2:15The LORD God took man and put him in the Garden of Eden to till it and keep it.

The creation narratives of the first and second chapters of Genesis might provide ample opportunity for debate, but I love this vision of our role on Earth as its caretakers.  We are asked to be good stewards of God’s creation.

Creator God, thank you for this wonderful day.  Help us to understand our role in caring for your masterful creation.  Amen.
