In biblical texts the imagery of birth is sometimes used to describe the process of creation. Equally, the language of creation is used to disclose birth and conception. In these processes human bodily experiences are regarded as essential. In addition to these biblical findings this article calls upon Hannah Arendt’s concept of to reflect on how to deal with genetics. The question is whether our creative strivings can reflect God’s will in creation as embodied relationships, and the concept of continual creation as well. The author asks what will change if bodily experiences are further separated from the notions of conception and birth.
