More Harink: Redemption

Two Harink quotes in successive days?  I couldn’t pass this one up:

For what is promised in Christ and the Spirit is not the community’s escape from its enmeshment in the created order, but rather the redemption of the whole created order with the children of God. (121)

The context for this quote is a discussion of Rom 8:12–39.  But, I find it resonates well with Eph 1:3–14.
