Honor the Season of Advent: 5 Days of Lessons and Carols

DAY 1 OF 5

Read aloud Genesis 3: 8-15

Dwell on the words of “Adam Lay YBounden,” a medieval text of unknown authorship set to music:

Adam lay ybounden,
Bounden in a bond;
Four thousand winter
Thought he not too long.
And all was for an apple,
An apple that he took,
As clerkes finden written
In their book.

Contemplate together: What do you know about the story of Adam? How has it shaped your understanding of Jesus of Nazareth? How does listening to “Adam Lay YBounden” deepen and enrich our understanding of the events of Genesis 3? What do the final words Deo Gratias mean, and how do they shape our understanding of why the Genesis story is important in Advent?
