I believe that . . .
God is One
There is One God, God who created all that is, was, and will be, out of chaos. God is One, and that one-ness is revealed in the unity in diversity of creation; the connectedness of the cosmos, the community of humankind, and all of nature. God is One, experienced as communal, perpetual, giving, receiving, giving.
God is Truth
All Truth is revealed in and through God. The Wisdom of God is Jesus, the One who, in and through is way of being in the world, is the incarnated expression of Truth.
God is Beauty
All that is beautiful the spiraling galaxies of the universe; the glory of a morning sunrise; the shades of red, black, yellow and white of the human face; the music of Pachelbels Canon in D; the wistful smile of the Mona Lisa; the wondrous order of all Creation is the beauty of God. Beauty is expressed in the simplicity of a raindrop, the delicacy of a spiders web, and in the deep-carved lines of an old, old persons face.
God is Good
Goodness is revealed and experienced wherever persons come together in the Spirit of mutuality, radical equality, and justice. Goodness is revealed whenever humankind and the ecosystem are treated with reverence, respect, dignity and honor.
