West of Eden: The Journey from Innocence to Freedom
Readings: Psalm 103:1-14; Matthew 19:16-22, 25-26
Many consider the Garden of Eden a myth of our origins, how we came to our human condition, particularly why we suffer. At the heart of the story is the question: are we essentially good or evil? Original Sin or Original Blessing frameworks are attempts to answer this question, but are they most truthful? In this sermon, “West of Eden: The Journey from Innocence to Freedom,” I will explore a different way to approach this question that has profound implications for how we view ourselves and our world.
