Staying Peaceful, Despite Circumstances

From Undergraduate Chapel: Spring 2013

Lisa Sharon Harper takes an in-depth look at Genesis 2. She shares with the audience her struggle in questioning why God would have put the tree of the knowledge of good and evil in the garden of Eden. She explains her revelation that every time Adam and Eve passed by the tree, they experienced their loving need of God by having to choose to obey and trust him. Through Jesus, God has promised redemption. The question, Harper says, is not whether God will restore the world, but whether hie people will take part in it.
