“Be fertile and increase, fill the earth and master it; and rule…all the living things that creep on earth.”
_Curators and Caretakers
The church often uses the word “stewardship” to generalize things that have to do with resources that we share in common. We have stewards who take care of our budget, our building and other resources that we have. But it might be a little misleading in that when I think of a steward I think of as someone who brings me meals on a plane…or at least used to, now they bring me a little bag of wheat-thins. In our culture today we often think of a steward as something like a waitress, someone who waits on us. This makes it sound to one-sided.
The truth is that we are all, everyone here, to be caretakers of one another, of what we have and of what we share in common together.
