This week BibleWorm returns to our study of the Narrative Lectionary by going allll the way back to the creation story in Genesis 2 and 3. We discuss what it means that human beings are made of dust and breath and ponder our relationship to plants, animals, and the earth. We wrestle with the tree of knowledge of good and evil and why it is that such knowledge is so troubling for humankind. We wonder about the serpent in the garden and ask whether it was ever possible that Eden was going to work in the first place. And we think about humans hiding our true selves from God, embarrassed to be only what God created us to be.
