liberating liturgies and disgruntled employees


In case you missed it, I wrote a “liberating liturgy/creed/statement of belief” over at my friend Sarah’s blog.

It begins:

I believe that we best know God through the Word of God

and that Jesus – not a book – is this Word,

the Ultimate Revelation of the creative Love behind the universe.

I believe that the Eternal Divine is not trapped in some set of documents,

but that the Reliable, Infallible, Inerrant Word of God is,

and always has been, not a Manuscript, but a Person.

Please be sure to read the rest if you haven’t already, and let me know what you thought in the comments.  I know her campaign will be going on for a while, so please feel free to write a creed of your own and submit it.

PS: for those who don’t know, I was supposed to be in Los Angeles this weekend for a retreat/conference with the Japanese American Citizens League, but all flights out of the midwest were canceled/delayed yesterday because of some disgruntled employee-turned arsonist.  So I now have some time on my hands, and I’ll be getting into LA late tonight and leaving tomorrow morning.  I think there will be enough time for one decent roll of sushi and bowl of ramen, and that’s all I could ever ask for!
