an inclusive statement of Christian faith 

We trust Love who is God

before us, beyond us 

and urgently now.

Maker, Remaker of life, and life’s limits.

God: working with Earth, 

God: attending to birth;

decisive, co-operative, 

with seas and with skies.

God for justice by choice.

to be praised by all breathing.

We trust Jesus our Friend

Incarnate in Earth;

Who lives life with creatures 

who knows of their frailness

through flesh, blood, and birth 

and dependence on care.

Christ who loves, heals, and warns

and repurposes Scriptures;

Christ who  honours 

the welcome of God in the stranger;

God’s wisdom in creatures, our kin.

Jesus: Welcomed with branches,

then nailed to the Tree.

Abandoned to Death, 

Earth alone could receive him.

The third Day Christ rose 

to Life Renewed:

with us as surely as Sky;

We trust the Holy Spirit our God;

Wild Wind of beginnings

beyond our control

yet harnessed for justice;

Reshaping perceptions.

Breath of life;

Spirit of healing, forgiveness:

God with us urgently now.
