African Creator God

Creator God of the Life Tree

He planted the Life Tree in his garden. All were welcome to visit, embrace it and restore themselves to health and vigor whenever they felt poorly.

Humans took advantage for a while, then became complacent and couldn’t be bothered. "Who wants to visit a boring old tree anyway?" they said.

So he uprooted it and took it off to Heaven. Life without the Life Tree was never the same again. Not to mention Death.
