The Garden of Eden.

Earth’s mythic, idyllic beginning

Freedom, innocence and communing with nature and God

What’s not to like?

Reflect

In this account, God grants wide-ranging permission to Adam and Eve.
What experience of permission do you know concerning God? others? even yourself?
Does your sense of permission need to be recalibrated in line with this story?

Pray

For those who struggle with an overwhelming sense of guilt and inferiority.
For people who shy away from humility, refusing to bow down before the inscrutable mystery of life.
For governments that overreach their power, denying people fundamental freedoms.
For those who endure illness and chronic pain.

OUR PRAYER

PRAYERS FOR THE WORLD

Act

Take a risk; give someone permission to do something that you had previously thought
unwise.
