Richard Rohr from First Sunday of Advent
We fell in love with this personal interface in Jesus but forgot about the eternal Christ, the Body of God, which is all of creation, which is really the “First Bible.” Jesus and Christ are not exactly the same.

Those godly men who mythologized the “fall” written about in Genesis have had a fundamental and profound impact on the status of women. Eve was the first woman, made from Adam’s rib.
