Affirmation of Faith
We sing of God the Spirit, who from the beginning has swept over the face of creation, animating all energy and matter and moving in the human heart.
We sing of God the Spirit, faithful and untamable, who is creatively and redemptively active in the world.
The Spirit challenges us to celebrate the holy not only in what is familiar, but also in that which seems foreign.
We sing of the Spirit, who speaks our prayers of deepest longing and enfolds our concerns and confessions, transforming us and the world.
We offer worship as an outpouring of gratitude and awe and a practice of opening ourselves to God’s still, small voice of comfort, to God’s rushing whirlwind of challenge.
Through word, music, art, and sacrament, in community and in solitude, God changes our lives, our relationships, and our world.
