Every good story has some sort of disaster. Some sort of moment where it all goes wrong. Where the perfection or the relationship is damaged, seemingly beyond repair.

God’s story is no different.

Genesis 3 is the horrible moment when God’s creation decided to walk their own way. But this part of the story is about far more than eating apples or being naked. Instead, it’s the destruction of the beginning. The destruction of the perfect relationship.

No more talking face to face. No longer called friends. Not in a beautiful and perfect home any more.

Disaster has come.
