Rev. Joan DeVries examines Genesis 1:27 and what it means to be made in God's image; especially when compared to our contemporary culture's view of humankind. Joan DeVries stresses that reducing human beings to simply physical animals, removes any sense of their spirituality, emotions and uniqueness as God's children.
