If we define covenantal partners as those parties that are so 'other' from each other that they are able to enter into symbiosis with respect to their mutual waste and life sustaining commodities, then the covenantal relation between the divine and the mundane turns on the waste and life sustaining character of identity. Identity is a function of self-understanding. The covenantal relationship is in the spiritual realm, where identity resides. The acts of mutual sustenance with respect to what is waste and what is life supporting revolves around the mutual purification of each other’s identity.
