A Story of Broken Relationships

A Story of Broken Relationships

Genesis 3:1-7

This year we will be dedicating ourselves to becoming more like Jesus.  But that focus assumes something important that we need to make explicit – we need to become like Jesus because we are broken people.  This lesson will therefore consider the opening chapters of Genesis and their narration of God’s relationship-oriented intentions for humanity and the way that humanity’s rebellion broke those relationships.  Additionally, we will explore how humanity’s rebellion fractured three areas of relationships (God, self, and others), areas that will help shape our focus throughout the coming year.
