Genesis 1:1

It should come as no surprise that a pastor is reading their bible. But knowing how busy most pastors are it's actually tremendously difficult to spend time studying. The studying of the word is one of the most important tasks for a minister of any denomination. The reason correct theology for teaching. Seriously that's the reason. 

Have you ever heard one of those sermons that makes you think twice about the speaker. They say something that makes you feel uncomfortable for the wrong reason. That is because of wrong theology. Without diligent study it's easy to say stuff that's off key. So it's important to study. So I am trying this out. Here I am sat on a train....

Yep headphones on listening to Fred Hammond you know I love him right?! 
And I am trying to study. Bible open... 

Reading genesis. I know you think I am stuck at the beginning of the bible. Truth is I am. I think if you learn about the beginning the more the end makes sense. Seriously. 

Well something occurs to me as I read. Did God say plural or single in the beginning for heaven and earth. Turns out I am not the only one who has this thought as I discover online so I look for a translation from Hebrew to English.... 

Feeling like I should be enlightened I read on. It seems that heavens is always plural. So my thought is this. Isn't it great to not be alone. To realise that God is with us but he is also busy up there with lots of others who love him and made better choices than us. Quite frankly it made me smile.
