Meditation: Genesis – When we read the story of Noah, we tend to focus on the world covering flood or the rainbow covenant. We forget about the animals. Pairs of every animal “came to Noah.” How extraordinary is that? How did the pair of North American moose or the Capuchin monkey from South America get to Mesopotamia? Every animal that populates the earth is descended from the creatures who rode on the ark.
