Follow the link to view a sermon delivered by Pastor John Ortberg of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in Menlo Park, CA.

In this sermon, Pastor Ortberg sheds new light on the meaning of Genesis 1 by bringing his 21st century listeners back into the text’s ancient cultural context. Through this, we can have a greater appreciation for God’s message of his sovereignty and care over all of his creation. The work of Old Testament scholar John Walton is also referenced.

“My participation in BioLogos gatherings has profoundly benefited my pastoral leadership. Not only was I informed and inspired intellectually, but I was encouraged by being in the community of other spiritual leaders who desire to deepen their understanding and worship of the Creator.  I have used BioLogos materials and insights gained from the dialogue they foster, both in the conversations I have in church and the resources we produce to promote Creation Care (e.g. http://vimeo.com/61121345 ) Yet the real benefit comes from normalizing the complementarity of science and scripture in our congregation.
