Human Dignity: Interrogating Biblical and Cultural Perspectives on the Creation Mandate in Genesis 1-3

Interrogating Biblical and Cultural Perspectives on the Creation Mandate: Diphus Chemorion by CBE International

Patriarchy undermines the dignity God bestowed at creation. The first part of this workshop focuses on biblical reflections on human dignity and God’s image, and the second part concentrates on “redeeming God’s purpose for the creation of men and women.” With reference to creation narratives in Genesis and examples drawn from different cultures in Africa and other parts of the world, Chemorion demonstrates how cultural worldviews contribute to a diminished view of women, and what needs to be done to restore human dignity.
