Today I’m over at Deeper Culture writing about the flannel boards from my childhood Sunday School and how they’ve led me to make up my own ending to one of the stories:
But there was one story that always left me wondering. It was the one with flannel Adam and Eve leaving the Garden of Eden in their new clothes of flannel animal skins. They looked sad and dejected. Behind them, two flannel cherubim guarded the entrance to the Tree of Life, and a flannel flaming sword glowed, reminding me of Saturday morning cartoons and the sword of He-Man, Master of the Universe.
That story of the first two people being sent out of the garden stuck in my mind because when I was a child I always wondered, “What happened to those two angels guarding the Tree of Life? Are they still standing there, flashing sword burning fire?”
