What Do We Believe?

[Our community Creed adapted from the writings of Fr. John Shea.]
We believe that where people are gathered together in love, God is present and good things happen and life is full.
We believe that we are immersed in mystery, that our lives are more than they seem, that we belong to each other and to a universe of great creative energies whose source and destiny is God.
We believe that God is after us, that God is calling us from the depth of human life.
We believe that God has risked himself by becoming human in Jesus.
In and with Jesus, we believe that each of us is situated in the love of God, and the pattern of our life will be the pattern of Jesus: through suffering and death to resurrection.
We believe that the Spirit of Peace is alive with us as we gather to celebrate our common existence, the resurrection of Jesus and the fidelity of God.
And most deeply we believe that in our struggle to love, we incarnate God in this world.
So, aware of mystery and wonder, caught in friendship and laughter, we become speechless before the joy in our hearts as we celebrate the sacredness of life.
