The Beginning - Day 1
In the beginning the Word already existed; the Word was with God, and the Word was God. From the very beginning the Word was with God. Through him God made all things; not one thing in all creation was made without him. The Word was the source of life, and this life brought light to humanity. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out.
We begin the year declaring the truth that God created the heavens and earth and proclaiming that the earth is the Lord’s and everything in it.
