This video was in the making for about two years before it was finally finished and debuted at church during a sermon on honouring the God of creation. It’s a journey through Genesis 1 showing live footage of God’s creation set to dramatic music.

The voiceover at the beginning of the video is a recording by one of the crew of Apollo 8, reading from the book of Genesis on Christmas Eve, 1968. Video footage was taken from the BBC’s ‘Planet Earth’ documentary TV series, while the music is ‘Surrender to Hope’ by Immediate Music.

My favourite part of the video is the awesome flock of birds on Day 5. It brings to mind Matthew 6:26 where Jesus says “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”
