In this profound reflection, Dr. Prevot discusses his unique and comprehensive understanding of faith as fidelity and trust in all our relationships, from our relationship with God to our relationships with family, friends, and all our neighbors. He describes the ever-faithfulness of God to us and how that gives him great hope. Furthermore, Dr. Prevot explores the meaning of culture, culture as cultivation of the many gifts God has given us in the natural world and in creation, culture as a human activity by which we contribute to the beauty and goodness of this created world by bringing forth that beauty which is already there in the world around us. In doing so, we give glory, honor, and praise to our Creator.
An excerpt from Dr. Prevot: "We'll never be in right relationship with God unless we've learned to be truthful and honest in our own relationships."
