Pastor has been Genesis for a while. February 29, 2012. "The Family of Seth"

Genesis 4: 24 - 26 
'If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.
'And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: Then Began Men to Call Upon the Name of the Lord.'

Abel's blood to God from the ground for justice. Jesus' blood cried out from the alter in the Holy of Holies in heaven itself for mercy.

We lost Eden. The garden is not home for us anymore. He has taken it. No.
We did. We betrayed and are put away as an unfaithful wife. Out here, we are tired and hurt and lonely. Here, we must toil. It is here that we fear the lion's call, no longer our friend but our fierce enemy.
The serpent said our eyes would be opened. The serpent said we would see good and evil. We see. We lost Eden.
We died. The fruit was sweet, and it was bitter. It was nothing special. The fruit was poison.
Poison of fear, shame, guilt filled us. Panic. Dread. He saw. He knew. He gave us a promise, a way back. A savior from this evil we now see. This evil now in us. He sent us out of the garden. We died.
We lost God. We cannot see Him, cannot hear him. He will not come to us. He has taken our ease and comfort. Keep them. Keep Eden. Let us have You. We don't like the way we feel. Fear has taken hold of joy. It strangles it. That communion, the existence with You, oh, let us have it back. We beg, God, send the redemption. Let us see You again. 
We lost God.

“Perfectionism is the voice of the oppressor, the enemy of the people. It will keep you cramped and insane your whole life, and it is the main obstacle between you and a shitty first draft. I think perfectionism is based on the obsessive belief that if you run carefully enough, hitting each stepping-stone just right, you won't have to die. The truth is that you will die anyway and that a lot of people who aren't even looking at their feet are going to do a whole lot better than you, and have a lot more fun while they're doing it.” Anne Lamott
