At Last
By Sarah Are
Inspired by Genesis 2:4b-25

“I love this story of Adam and Eve. For generations people have abused this story, trying to imply that women are less than men because Eve came second, but that is not the point of this story. The power of this story is not in the order. The power of this story is in a God that saw how humans need one another, and in Adam’s first testimony of belonging. Before Eve, Adam was alone—truly alone—and you and I both know that we as humans need one another. It’s the way we’re wired. God sees Adam’s isolation and responds. God transforms that deep human loneliness into deep human belonging through new creation.
What amazes me most about this story is Adam’s response. It would be so human of Adam to focus on their differences, to be hesitant in his welcome, or to act superior for being made first. However, instead of focusing on their differences, Adam immediately celebrates their connection. It’s as if Adam says, ‘At last! I have been waiting for someone to belong to, and even though we look different, we are made from the same God, so you and I, we belong together.’ Can’t you just hear Adam’s sigh of relief? Can’t you imagine how deeply his heart must have ached in his own human isolation, and how quickly that must have changed at the sight of her face?
I wonder just how different this world would be if we saw strangers and friends like Adam sees Eve. You the refugee, you the convict; you who is black or white, old or young, gay or straight—you are bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh. You and I, we belong together. May we never forget it.”
