The Prompter Room

For Friday, February 3, 2017:

 

According to Genesis, the world begins with a word.  Speech gives way to substance and forms every living thing.  I wonder if this was the first time God spoke.  And I wonder if God began to create because God longed to hear her own voice, to see it take form and flesh in the unfolding of the world.

Elie Wiesel, who survived the Holocaust and … spent the rest of his life turning its horrors into stories, says that God created people because God loves stories.  We are the vessels of God’s voice, her words blowing through us, bidding us to tell the tales that only we can speak.
