advent reading day 2: the fruit tree
scripture reading: the terrible lie, genesis 3, JSBB pgs 28-37*
symbol: a fruit tree, representing adam's and eve's choice not to trust God and to eat from the forbidden tree
Before they left the garden, God whispered a promise to Adam and Eve: "It will not always be so! I will come to rescue you! And when I do, I'm going to do battle against the snake. I'll get rid of the sin and the dark and the sadness you let in here. I'm coming back for you!
