I present a new method to analyze Glauber dynamics of the Sherrington-Kirkpatrick (SK) spin glass model. The method is based on ideas used in the classical kinetic theory of fluids. I apply it to study spin correlations in the high temperature phase ($T\ge T_c$) of the SK model at zero external field. The zeroth order theory is equivalent to a disorder dependent local equilibrium approximation. Its predictions agree well with computer simulation results. The first order theory involves coupled
