Glen Shedlock / Return to Eden
Sat 12:00pm - 12:50pm
Type of Experience: Workshop
Content Type: Spiritual Evolution
We know the story of the Garden of Eden all too well. Adam and Eve disobey God, and God responds by cursing them and throwing them out of the Garden forever. The result, at least according to the narrative we were taught, was the “curse” of “original sin,” the belief that humans are born sinful and are doomed to eternal separation from God – unless, of course, we “get saved” by Jesus. These nightmarish beliefs, protected and perpetuated by the institutional church, have done enormous damage to the psycho-spiritual maturity of countless people of faith throughout history, and severely damaged the spiritual vitality of the body of Christ. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could Return to Eden and look at these primal narratives in a Way that would enable us to re-imagine the core narratives of our faith? What if we never really left the Garden of Eden? What if there was no such thing as the “fall” of humankind or the nightmare of “original sin?” What if we could never be separated from God? Is this possible? The answer is YES! This workshop will help you discover “a more excellent way” of reimagining your experience of God.
