As creatures we are called to form cultures of creation that reflect God’s original peace and delight in a creation wonderfully made. This chapter reconsiders the meaning of work and leisure, economics, community, and food in light of the moral and spiritual goals of creation. The doctrine of salvation is restated to reflect the wholeness of our membership together before God.
