In the movie “The Last Emperor”, the young child anointed as the last emperor of China lives a magical life of luxury with a thousand eunuch

The created . . . again

I wonder what it was like at the beginning—you know when God formed Adam into a man, and breathed life into him. Can you

imagine watching God create? “The

Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his

nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.”…
