Watch the film, read the poem, journal your reflections and have a go yourself.
Eden is a spoken word film, telling the story of scripture in four beats – creation, fall, redemption and new creation. Written and performed by Dai Woolridge, the story captures the essence of the Gospel narrative and the Bible story in under 5 minutes. This film is a spoken-truth and Bible Society resource made free to watch, download and share – on social media, to a small group, school or Sunday service.
The Eden booklet is a physical resource created to accompany the spoken word film and is designed to get you thinking about God’s story through the Bible in a creative way. This is split into 5 sections – a creative introduction, a link to the spoken word film, the script of the spoken word poem, questions to reflect on, and a space to get creative yourself.
It can be used as a small group resource, a devotional to use personally, or as an alternative to a Bible or Gospel tract.
If you’d like to order more copies of the Eden booklet, they’re available to order for just £2 each (or £1 a copy when you order 10 or more, click here).
Towards the back of your booklet you’ll find a page titled ‘Your Turn’ with a blank space underneath. The reason being, that just as Eden creatively unpacks the Bible story, you may want to have a go yourself? If you’re a poet laureate and creating a couple of couplets comes naturally to you, or if the thought of writing a poem sends you into a panic, our hope is that you have a go yourself. You won’t be judged with marks out of 10, we’d just love you to engage with the story.
Often, the hardest part of creating something is getting started.
Dai has suggested a couple of poetic templates that you can use to frame your creativity...
We hope this little resource, helps you to engage with the story of Scripture in a fresh way. If you’d like to give us feedback on our latest resource, we’d love to hear it! Get in contact with Dai and the team at [email protected]
