Well, I’m back from writing leave. This Sunday I’ll begin the sermon series on “Strange Places in the Bible.” In the series we’ll look at some places in the Bible most liberal preachers just ignore because they’re so terrible. This week we’ll look at Genesis 3:1-7 where the “fall” is traditionally blamed on Eve. That’s the easy part. Then we’ll turn to 1 Timothy 2:8-15 where the author tells women to shut up in church and not try to be leaders because the fall was Eve’s fault. In the series we’ll think about the question, “What do we do with those parts of the Bible that no intelligent person can believe and no decent person can obey?” Thanks for all the suggestions. If I live, I’ll give a report.
