The initial chapters of Genesis paint a picture of the world as God intended it to be. Everything is good; there is no sin, sorrow, pain, or death. Humanity lives in perfect fellowship with God, each other, and with the creation. But today, everywhere we look we see pain, rebellion, brokenness, hopelessness, despair. And in our own lives, no matter how badly we want to honor God, we struggle with temptations as sin screams at us from all sides, begging us to rebel against God and pursue our own desires. How did the world get to this point? Where do we find hope? Join us the week for Multiply as we study “The Fall: Sin and Hope” – the story of Genesis 3-11.
Join us on Thursdays at 1:00pm or 6:45pm at Deep Water’s building. Remember, if you don’t want to parallel park, the parking lot on North Street is done. It is shared with the City and several local businesses. You may park in the lot in any space with “LSA”–don’t worry they are clearly visible and plenty of them.
Our discussions are based on the Biblical texts and influenced by the book Multiply. (Feel free to buy the book–or download it as a pdf for FREE at www.multiplymovement.com.) It’s NOT necessary to read the book, but if you’re following along and want to keep up, read part IV, 2: The Fall. It’s NOT necessary to read the Bible text ahead of time, but some people like to get familiar with it before we meet. If you want to get familiar with the Bible texts we’ll be reading, read Genesis 3. We’ll also be making reference to Genesis 4-11.
