Called to be in communion with God's creation???

I suppose we should be grateful that it doesn't say "Called to be in communion with what Godself has created".

Called to be in communion, my barnacles! That jumped out at me, too. Pure pantheism.

That description is dead on what our generation needs to hear. If you really think its Man's job to rape and pillage the Earth just to increase his number than you are the embodiment of the evil and pride of Adam's folly. How can you claim to be in line with God's will when you put yourself at the center?

Besides, why do you people care so much what the ELCA does or says? If you don't like it, you should leave!
