This chapter examines the Household of God and smaller households by looking more specifically at how members of those households ought to live in this “in‐between” time. This chapter considers, first, virtue and practice as part of how the Household of God forms constituent households and then looks at specific practices of the Household and households. Some practices considered include Eucharist, baptism, and hospitality; baptism and confirmation in relation to dating, novitiates, marriage, and procreation; being dependent on other members of the household; and related questions about gender differences, bodily differences (as in disability), and ecumenical conversation.

Keywords:   virtue, practice, hospitality, dating, novitiate, marriage, procreation, gender, disability, ecumenical
