Issue No. 3

Fall: Is Work a Four-Letter Word?

Cover for Issue No. 3

If Cultivate No 2 was a light and fun read, the texts that follow in No 3 are sobering. As we know, all good stories have a terrible wrong that needs to be set right, an evil to be eradicated, an obstacle to overcome, a wickedness to be defeated. In this issue we focus on sin and the fall and how sin perverts, pollutes, and disintegrates everything. Specifically, we examine how sin has driven a wedge between work and worship.
