Ted Gossard is spot on:
We are severed in our relationship to God, to each other, to ourselves and to creation. We become the center in our minds and lose out in terms of what God created us to be: humans, made in his image.
We need to get back to the pages of scripture and find in them both needed instruction and the good news of redemption and restoration in Jesus. The remake into his likeness and thus into God's image toward the full humanity in and through Jesus.
