In this message we're going to talk about the science of epigenetics. What does God say through how our genes express themselves? What do epigenetics teach us about how God teaches and cares for us?
"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well."
Psalm 139:13-14, TNIV
"A cell in your skin will have all the skin-specific genes ready to activate when needed, while it will have all pancreas-specific genes "locked away", not accessible for production in any circumstance. That happens because of the epigenetic regulation of those genes. At the same time, our own life experiences can influence this "availability". It's interesting to note that there is no change in the actual DNA sequence, it's just how accessible it is to be "read". It's also interesting that these traits can be inherited, in some cases. it's as if our parents gave us the book of life (our genes), but they also highlighted the important passages and put a shade over the chapters that they didn't need (assuming we won't need them either)."
