Well, Rich, In Romans 8:19, we read about ourselves: “For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.” It seems that Creation has been “groaning in travail” waiting for us, the sons of daughters of God! I think that this is an ongoing process, Hildegard of Bingen the 12th Century Abbess who wrote so wonderfully about creation, echoes these words in Romans. She says that creation is constantly giving birth, which to us means that every generation learns another pattern of desire. Jesus is standing in for Adam, the human pattern of desire, or will, which is being drawn once more to the Father’s pattern of desire. (Genesis 3:19 and Luke 22:42, 44)
