"The Vocation of All Human Beings"



"The vocation of all human beings, it seems, consists in this: to stand at the interface between God and his creation, bringing God's wise and generous order to the world and giving articulate voice to creation's glad and grateful praise to its maker. . . .

Worship and stewardship, generating justice and beauty: these are the primary vocations of God's redeemed people."

--N.T. Wright, After You Believe

Oh yes... OH YES. That hits the spot exactly. Especially in this beautiful autumn season.

Wonderful quote! I'm fresh from a Creation Care Sunday School class and wish I had this on hand at the time.

We are big NT Wright fans here but I've not read this book yet. What a wonderfully-articulated description of our shared vocation!! I plan to write it down and post it in my kitchen. Thank you!
