As creatures made in the “image of God,” we have a unique identity and vocation. After showing that the popular models of ourselves as stewards or citizens of creation is inadequate, a case is made for humans as the servants of creation. This account of servanthood is tied to ecological insight and developed in terms of the current design technique called biomimicry.

Keywords:   Image of God/Imago Dei, Steward, Citizen, Servant, Biomimicry, Vocation
