Teaching Culture
Exerpts from the "Trinity Catechism" authored by Doug Jones focusing on our cultural calling:

V. What marriage in creation is this?

Adam and Eve were married in the Garden,
a king and queen, enjoying peaches, hawks,
each other, sent to build bridges, phones, toys.


V’. What is the purpose of this marriage of Son and Church?

This new Adam and Eve pick-up the work
abandoned by the first - to raise a godly
seed, expand the feast, and build a garden city.

Jones calls this a catapoem - and with good reason. It is truly a catachism and a poem rolled into one.
