In the English service we were looking at Genesis 3, and how things went wrong.
We talked about the way Eve was tempted, the way man fell and the consequences, being :
Relationships inverted and destroyed (including death !)
The curses pronounced
Judgement, and the promise of salvation
Then why am I implicated in what Adam did, with an introduction to covenant theology and our covenant representatives.
We sang "Joy to the world", "My hope is built on God alone", and "He was pierced", which went particularly well - NOT. Grace read, but we did not sing, In Eden - sad indeed that day. We didn't sing it because it's just TOO Welsh. We used guitar and the magic MP3 music machine.
Some new folk, some holiday-makers, some folk leaving us to return home after their studies.
