The Echoes of Eden Project is an attempt to bring the depth of Biblical tradition to contemporary life.
In particular, attention will be paid the themes which repeat themselves. Sometime they are echoes, at times ripples and at times the persistent beating of a drum. Ideas experiences and dilemmas of the past return and challenge and inspire us. We need to identify these themes for they have the ability to shed light on our own experiences. At times experience of the present allows us to appreciate and better understand episodes in the ancient past.
Time is shortened when we see the past is not that far away, and the future not as distant as we had previously thought.
We hope to publish weekly essays, which will be both timely, and grounded in text and tradition.
The Echoes of Eden Project is sponsored by Raymond and Elizabeth Gindi, and Mitchel and Joleen Julis.
