A reading from the Book of Wendel.
17:1 In the beginning Wendel created the heaven and the earth.17:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of Wendel moved upon the face of the waters.17:3 And Wendel said, Let there be light: and there was light.17:4 And Wendel saw the light, that it was good: and Wendel divided the light from the darkness.17:5 And Wendel called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.17:6 And Wendel said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.17:7 And Wendel made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.17:8 And Wendel called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.17:9 And Wendel said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.17:10 And Wendel called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called the Seas: and Wendel saw that it was good.17:11 And Wendel said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.17:12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and Wendel saw that it was good.17:13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.17:14 And Wendel said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years.17:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.17:16 And Wendel made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.17:17 And Wendel set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth, 17:18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and Wendel saw that it was good.17:19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.17:20 And Wendel said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven.17:21 And Wendel created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and Wendel saw that it was good.17:22 And Wendel blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.17:23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.17:24 And Wendel said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.17:25 And Wendel made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and Wendel saw that it was good.17:26 And Wendel said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.17:27 So Wendel created man in his own image, in the image of Wendel created he him; male and female created he them.17:28 And Wendel blessed them, and Wendel said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.17:29 And Wendel said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.17:30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so.17:31 And Wendel saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.17:32 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.17:33 And on the seventh day Wendel finally scheduled a Toronto Maple Leafs hockey game so that he could watch the Leafs as he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.17:34 And Wendel blessed the Leafs, and sanctified them because they were the chosen ones and truly the glory of the work Wendel had done.
