God Creates Humanity (Day 6 of Creation at Chartres)

God’s touch was the first thing that humans experienced. It brought us to life.

My prayer

Creator, Help me to re-member Your animating presence in my life.

God creates Eve

 

Biblical touchstones

So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27

…what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them? Psalm 8:4

I, wisdom, I was daily God’s delight, rejoicing before God always, rejoicing in God’s inhabited world and delighting in the human race. Proverbs 8:31

Invitation to prayer

Reach out to God—literally—using Eve’s or Adam’s gesture, or another that your body would like to use.
