I truly believe that the Easter message can be found nestled in the plot line of the Bible’s Book of Genesis.

At the very outset in Holy Scripture, we see in God’s Word that the Divine is all about Salvation. There was nothingness, formless chaos; but then our Creator God interceded with the to save, and saw to the interposing of light, and with light came meaning — in every sense an act of Salvation, especially when we consider the opposite.
