Genesis 1:1 - 2:4 - Sunday Scripture Reflection

Updated: Jun 7, 2023


As we celebrate Trinity Sunday, we will hear the story of the creation of the world and explore the many blessings of God's creative miracles. Trinity Sunday is a time for us to reflect on the mysterious nature of the Triune God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) and consider how we are invited to live a life of love and relationship. God is a perfect example of love and relationship in the Trinity, and we will explore that creative love in the miracle of the story of the beginning of all things!


Our Scripture passage is found in the Book of Genesis. You may find the Scripture lesson by selecting the following link: (Genesis 1:1 - 2:4).


For continuing study, reflect on these questions (found in the study guide below):

  • Read the Creation story found in the Scripture lesson assigned for the week. What are some images or actions found in this story that capture your attention? Are there parts of this story that speak of the "Triune God" as you imagine the specific details of the creation of the cosmos?

  • Read the "WHAT..." paragraph in the guide below and reflect on the author's statement that "The God of Scripture is just too big and mysterious and communal..." This statement could be applied to many aspects of God...how do you think the idea that God is just too big for description applies to this creation story?

  • Read the "WHERE..." paragraph below and reflect on the following: how do you understand the significance of creation's "goodness?"; what does it mean to you to be called to be a steward of such goodness?

  • Read the "SO WHAT..." paragraph below and reflect and answer the author's question: "How would you describe the indescribable, incomprehensible mystery of the Trinity?"

  • Read the "NOW WHAT..." paragraph below and reflect on the goodness of creation and answer the following: "When you think of yourself as being created in the image of God, what hopes do you have for your future, and for the future of God's creation?" Reflect on the following statement by the author, and what does this statement mean for how you live your life? "We do unto creation as God has done unto us; we express love and care toward the world."
