a community creating for the relentless return of Sunday

affirmation: the gifts of women

We believe in God, Creator and Sustainer of all that lives;
the One in whose image all are made;
the One who kept covenant with Sarah and Abraham and never forgot Hagar,
who answered Hannah’s deepest prayer, and
gave songs to Miriam, Deborah and Mary;
the One who loves, hears and sings over us still today.

We believe in Jesus Christ, Redeemer and Savior of all who believe;
the One who loved Martha and Mary;
the One who fed the crowds,
who healed the woman who bled, and
raised Jairus’ daughter and Lazarus;
the One whose love, life, death and rising re-creates us still today.

We believe in the Spirit, Comforter and Interpreter for all who cry out;
the One who came in fire and wind;
the One who gave courage to Esther,
who caused David to dance, and
made John leap in Elizabeth’s womb;
the One who breathes life into the Word and us still today.

We believe that the Body of Christ is made up of
hands large and small, hearts old and young,
legs strong and weak, and feet made beautiful
as they carry the Good News to the nations.

We join those who have gone before and those in the generations to follow
in praise of the triune God who was and is and is to come. AMEN.
