With a sermon on the stories in Genesis 2 and 3 we begin our journey with the Narrative Lectionary. The theme for the Fall that we will follow in worship and Church School is "God's Promises". What can we take from ancient stories of the creation and fall of humanity? We don't read them as history. We know that taking them literally raises more questions than it answers. But there is still truth about what it is to be human, and to live in this world in relationship with the One we believe created it. A lot of the time we're more like Adam and Eve in Genesis 3 than in chapter two. Naked and afraid.
