We believe that God is present in the darkness before dawn; in the waiting and uncertainy where fear and courage join hands, conflict and caring link arms, and the sun rises over barbed wire. We believe in a with-us God Who sits down in our midst to share our humanity. We affirm a faith That takes us beyond the safe place into action, into vulnerability. and into the streets. We commit ourselves to work for change and put us on the line; to bear responsibility, to take risks, live powerfully and face humiliation; to stand with those on the edge; to chose life and be used by the Spirit for God’s new community of hope. Amen
