So, over the holidays in 2019, I started working on a book.
Whenever I’ve started at a new church, there’s always been this question: “What should I preach first?” Where do we begin with God? What can I share about faith that will also share about myself, and invite others to discover more of who they are? And I’ve often ended up in Eden: the beginning, of course, seems like a good place to start.
As the pandemic forced people and communities of faith to reevaluate some of those questions, now there’s a sense that we’re looking for a good place to restart. And it gives me both hope and comfort that the beginning might still be the best place to start.
The things we want to believe most about God are still present there in the first truths from the Garden of Eden. And in those first truths, we also find the most important things to believe about ourselves.
I’m thrilled to share that Roots of Eden is scheduled for release in July 2021. Sign up for updates at rootsofedenbook.com.
