Creation Series – “It Wasn’t Supposed to be Like This! Genesis 3”

September 14, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

Thursday, September 14 at 7 p.m. | St. Pius X Church, 112 Fairview Drive, Selinsgrove


“It Wasn’t Supposed to be Like This! Genesis 3” presented by Father Joshua Cavender

Reading any news platform tells us that things seem to be going awry in our world. From neighborhood disputes to natural disasters, the world seems like it is not working the way that it should. Genesis chapter 3 tells us how the world broke. In our battle to be good stewards of creation, we often try to mend these issues with policy and social organizations, but is there a deeper problem that needs to be addressed? In this presentation, we will be diving into Scripture to understand how the world broke so that we can point ourselves in the direction of a solution.


Registration Deadline: September 12, 2023
