Reply to "MISC Workshop lessons and idea for teaching the Adam and Eve story"

Music Workshop

A start of an idea for a music sort of workshop (especially for younger children and for teachers who like "piggyback" songs)

A song about Adam and Eve to the tune of Farmer in the Dell:

http://www.dltk-bible.com/gene...dam_and_eve_song.htm

First verse, to give you a feel (not copying entire song for copyright reasons):

God made the universe
God made the universe
He saw that it was good, Amen
God made the universe

Final verse:

And that’s how things went wrong
And that’s how things went wrong
Oh that is why life became so hard
Yes, that’s how things went wrong.

The song does not get very deep into the story. Which would provide a great jumping off point for discussion of what plot points are missing, what the theological implications are (see Neil's discussion about an alternative way about thinking about the story). Discuss how things did go "wrong" but also that God found Adam and Eve and clothed them and went into the world with them. 

Compose new/additional verses for the song to add the redemption aspect.
