To help cement the teaching from the sermon today from Genesis 1, we would do well to remind ourselves and one another continually of the words of Athanasius who emphasises the importance of a not separating God as creator from God as redeemer:

There is thus no inconsistency between creation and salvation for the One Father has employed the same Agent for both works, effecting the salvation of the world through the same Word who made it in the beginning. On the Incarnation
