If you’ve thought of Genesis as nothing more than a dusty book of who-begat-who’s, then you’ve been missing a lot! The first book of the Hebrew Scriptures is a powerful narrative that introduces us to some of the most compelling glimpses into the human condition ever recorded.
Join us to see what the Garden teaches us about identity, development, and the impacts of shame. Explore how the relational dynamics of jealousy, rage, and fear played out among the first family and what we can learn from those messages today. See how family dysfunction and generational sin worked out in the Patriarchs and their progeny and the implications for looking at our own family stories. And see how the theme of desire is a running thread throughout the Genesis text.
You’ll leave with a new appreciation for the Old Testament stories, as well as a lively new Biblical context for looking at your own relationships today.
