What if we could go back in time
to see how the world was created?   MIME enters,
Do you want to try that?             nodding.
Let us pretend
that we can see how God
is the Creator of all things.

In the beginning,                   Listen intently.
God decided                         
He wanted someone to love.          Motion to self,
So God decided to create people,     questioningly.
but before He did that,
He wanted to create
the most beautiful place
for them to live.

At first,                           Look around
the earth was empty and dark.        questioningly.
So on the first day,                Show one finger.
God said,
“Let there be light!”               Smile, look around.

He separated
the light from the dark,
so there was night                  Lay head “sleeping”.
and day.                            Wake up.
And God saw that it was good.       “Okay” hand signal.

On the second day,                  Show two fingers.
God said,
“Let the waters be separated.”

So some of the waters               Ripple all fingers,
become a canopy above the earth      raise one hand while
to protect everything below.         lowering the other.

so there will be land.”              side, hand drops to
So there was earth,                  form bank, as water
and the sea.                        lowers to other side.

Then God said,                      Keep flat land arm,
“Let the earth grow grass,          put other hand behind
plants,                              and have it “grow”
and fruit trees.                     up and up.
And God saw that it was good.       “Okay” hand signal.

On the fourth day,                  Show four fingers.
God said,
“Let there be lights
in the sky.”   
So there was the moon               Form circle w/hands
and the stars,                       then do star dots...
and there was the sun.              Raise both hands big.
And God saw that it was good.       “Okay” hand signal.

On the fifth day,                   Show five fingers.
God said,
“Let there be many living things
in the water
and in the skies.”

So the water was filled
with many living things,            Make fish hands and
like many kinds of fish.             “swim” side to side.
And there were many kinds           Cross hands and flap
of birds flying in the air.          around “flying”.
And God saw that it was good.       “Okay” hand signal.

On the sixth day,                   Show six fingers.
