Adam & Eve in the Garden of EdenI think it’s worth having a discussion about the false dichotomies that forest church does away with. Traditionally in the west there has been an emphasis on the goodness of the sky, the spirit, the light and men. Yet, the scriptures affirm that YHWH also created the earth, the body, the night and women. And called them good. This has many implications, not least for how we disciple people. That is, teaching can incorporate activity and movement and play, in all sorts of different environments. We need not restrict ourselves to cognitive downloads while seated in rows. We need not separate adult and youth teaching to the degree that is these days common in building based churches.
