The Sins of the First Humans

Genesis 3:8-17, 20-24 NRSV

He drove out the man; and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim, and a sword flaming and turning to guard the way to the tree of life. (Genesis 3:24)

Watch out! Sin will creep in to separate us from God; however, through Christ we are reunited with God.

In keeping with our Connectional Theme of Environmental Justice in 2018, in the months of September – November our prayer focus will be on “Hazardous Waste”.

During the month of October, pray for those who live in communities in which hazardous waste is improperly or inadequately disposed. Pray for the leaders in those communities to take action to correct this inhumanity, and for the health of the residents.
