Good morning.
Today's assembly is about when God created the world.
To create something means to make something out of nothing.
God created the world out of nothing - and that is truly a wonderful thing.

2. When the Apollo 8 astronauts were on their way back from the first manned moon flight, they sent a message to all the people on earth.
Here is part of what they said,

ASTRONAUTS: For all the people back on earth, the crew of Apollo 8 has a message that we would like to send you:
In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth - and the earth was without form and void - and darkness was upon the face of the deep. Then the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters - and God said, "Let there be light - and there was light!"

3. The words of that message are taken from the Bible, where the story is told of the creation of all things by God our Father.
The three astronauts on that space flight were the first men to see some of the wonders of the earth, moon and stars viewed from space.

4. We all admire skilled workmen and what they produce.
God is the Master Craftsman who made the whole universe.
The astronauts' message calls on us all to open our eyes and to think more deeply about the things God has created out of nothing.
This is the story of Creation as told in the Bible.

5. On the first day, God made earth. Earth was empty and dark. God said,

GOD: Let there be light.

5. And there was light. He called the light day and the darkness night - and he saw that it was good.

6. On the second day, God made the sky and called it Heaven - and he saw that it was good.

7. On the third day, God separated the sea from the dry land. He made grass, plants and fruit trees grow on the land - and he saw that it was good.

8. On the fourth day, God made the Sun, the Moon and the stars - and he saw that it was good.

9. On the fifth day, God made sea creatures and birds - and he said to them,

GOD: Be fruitful and multiply.

10. On the sixth day, God made animals to live on the land - and he made man in his own image, to have power over every living thing. God said to them,

GOD: Be fruitful and multiply.

10. God saw everything he had made and it was very good.

11. On the seventh day, God rested. He blessed the seventh day and made it a day of rest - and God was very pleased.

12. Nothing that we can make is ever more wonderful than what God has made.
We could never make anything as beautiful as a mountain stream - nor even anything as tiny and delicate as a flower.
Jesus told us this when he said,

JESUS: Consider the liles of the field, how they grow... even King Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

13. Not only did God make so many beautiful things, but he also made man - and gave him the responsibility of looking after these beautiful things and of using them wisely - a great responsibility indeed.

14. Let us now remember the enormity of this task as we sing "All Things Bright and Beautiful" by C. Alexander (Celebration Hymnal for Everyone number 27)
