Today we read and think about Adam and Eve

The story of original sin?

…or maybe something much more intriguing

Reflect

We can’t reduce this story to a simple insight. It is complex. Last week, I spoke about Matthew Fox’s designation of it as ‘Original Blessing.’

Today, I add to that – ‘Original Blessing, including vulnerability and even shame.’

How might you resist rushing to a conclusion about this seminal story and sit with its complexity? What insights arise?

Pray

For those willing to bear pain, physical, emotional and spiritual, to bring forth life

For those in power who make decisions that affect many

For those who wait every day for a phone call from a friend

For those who suffer chronic pain through illness

OUR PRAYER

PRAYERS FOR THE WORLD

Act

Decide to take on a new creative project, one that inspires you and gives you sufficient
motivation to endure the frustration that likely will accompany it.
