Statement of Values

So that you may understand me a little bit more, here are some of my beliefs.  In no particular order.

I believe…

 

  • God is Love (1 Jn 4:8).
  • in the Holy Trinity; that God in God’s self is relational.
  • that Jesus is the son of God.
  • in forgiveness.
  • grace, unconditional love is a great gift and a reason for living.
  • that we are ALL created imago dei – perfect with all our imperfections.
  • in protecting and honoring the dignity and worth of each person.
  • in hesed.
  • that much is to be learned from all faith traditions.
  • there is truth in both sides of a story.
  • you can have your cake and eat it too if you’re willing to strive for a creative solution.
  • in working passionately.  Used to be called the Midwest work ethic.
  • communicating is important.
  • striving to understand.
  • learning is fun!
  • in social justice.  There is too much poverty and suffering in the world.
  • some Christians are not very Christian.
  • you always have a choice.
  • that each of us can make a difference.
  • we are called to live in community – to support each other.
  • we should take care of mother earth.
  • that caring and empathy requires listening.
  • in family.

  1. I so strongly believe in community. I am excited for 2012. I feel like people are coming back to community, perhaps as a very good outcome of living through a very scary economy.
