Why did God create? How did God Create? What in the world did God Create? How did sin enter into the world? What was the sin and what does that mean for us? These and so many more questions will be answered as we walk through the early chapters of Genesis!

Matt’s keynote presentation: The Mystery of Creation and Sin


  • Practice seeing everyone as an end to themselves and treat them in this way. Try to become aware of even the little place where we might reduce someone as a means to our own end/use them.

  • Every night before bed, ask God where your “perfectly redeemed day” did not come to fruition and ask Him for help to see why it did not. Ask God for the grace to live 1% more in His Love tomorrow. Thank him for those moments where His love prevailed in your life!

Prayer Assignment:

  • Genesis .18-20
    Think about how God desires us to come to our own awareness of what brings us life and not forcing Himself upon us.

  • Matthew 5.27
    Pray through this passage through the lens of hope. That Christ is revealing the true problem with humanity for purpose of providing the antidote…Himself!
