Item description for Guests of God: Stewards of Divine Creation by Monika K. Hellwig & Erica Hellwig Parker...
Overview What does it mean to be a "guest of God"? According to author Monika Hellwig, it means cultivating a deep awareness of God's hospitality and living as a responsible, faithful steward of all creation. In Guests of God, Hellwig explores how an awareness of devine hospitality has far-reaching implication": it affects our relationships and influences our approach to such issues as peace, ecological justice, simplicity of lifestyle, poverty, and the common good. The author's insightfull reflections help us see our everyday lives in the context of our relationship with God-and also raise important questions about matters we might ordinarily take for granted.
Publishers Description Using insightful meditations, psalm adaptations and line drawings, the eminent theologian invites readers to become more aware of themselves as guests on God's earth and to consider how that affects their relationship to God, to other people and to material things. For both individuals and small groups.
