We're beginning the year in a logical place - in Genesis, the book of beginnings.
Apart from being such an interesting book, Genesis is full of "firsts". It contains the first man, the first woman, the first sin, the first lie, the first murder, the first temptation, the first death, and the first instance of polygamy, just to name a few.
But what I really love about Genesis is that the stories are so full of important principles.
But while we're making a good start on the Old Testament (including part of Exodus), we also manage to get through all the Gospel of Matthew, as well as part of Mark.
