Compassionate Creed

We believe in God the Creator,
loving parent of all who live,
weeping when a child
is wounded by injustice;
angry within the protests
of the despairing and exploited;
and crying out as the voice of the silenced.

We believe in Jesus Christ,
overturning the tables of injustice,
determined in the face of oppression,
brave when the cost of life rises high,
and dying rather than giving up love.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
passionate wind of power for change,
giver of gifts for the struggle
and flame of fire to light and warm the way
for the bearers of truth.

We believe in the Triune God,
the God of every time and place
and we will carry the life of this God
into all the world.
