More from Inheriting Paradise by Vigen Guroian, Armenian Orthodox theologian and gardener:
"Man is a microcosm in whose flesh resonates and reverberates the pulse of the whole creation, in whose mind creation comes to consciousness, and through whose imagination and will God wants to heal and reconcile everything that sin has wounded and put in disharmony."

In ordering creation to the authentic well-being of humanity . . . they share in the exercise of the power with which the Risen Christ draws all things to himself . . .” - The Lay Members of Christ’s Faithful People, (Christifideles Laici)14
