From an interview with Wendell:
You would see our relation to the world as trustees, shepherds, stewards, and guardians.
Wendell: Stewards. And enjoyers.
Enjoyers because the world is a gift, isnt it?
Wendell: Its important to understand that were given pleasures here. Its important to me to understand that there are heavenly things that are present here, in time, in flesh, wood, rock, water, and all the rest of it. These good things are sanctioned in a good bit of religious teaching as part of the revelation of eternity. The pleasantness [emphasis WB] of it seems to me to be extremely important. I don’t like the dualism of heaven and earth, which always leads you to condemn the earth as something evil, as something to be suffered through in order to get to heaven. It seems to me that there is an interpenetration, a major communication, and that to know this world at its best is to know something heavenly. And the other way around, too. To know it at its worst is to know something hellish. That’s how we know what to work for and what to hope for in this world. This seems to me to be sanctioned by Scripture.
Stewards and enjoyers. That seems to me like something worthy of basing our lives around.
