Cosmic Elation

June 11, 2017


The writers of Genesis lived in a world where people arranged their lives around a particular story, set in a particular time and place. It is not pure history or science, nor is it pure myth and fiction. It is the story they found themselves in; a story with two central characters: God and humanity. It’s a story that’s less about “cosmic inflation” and more about “cosmic elation”: the joy of a creating God, a God who creates all things “good.”
