Faith with New Words

I trust in God, our Caregiver, the primal ground,

creativity in heaven and earth and all.


And in Jesus, the Christ,              

our Leader and Teacher,

anointed by the awareness of God,

born of Mary, low, but greater than any ruler,


suffered under Pontius Pilate,

crucified, dead and buried,


gone from life in the shadows of memory,

on the third day raised from the dead,

raised into our hearts, our lives;

he is now our radicalized trust in God, our Caregiver;

from there he comes, always,

to judge us all.


I trust in Guidance by the consciousness of God,

the global gathering,

open participation with all,


a generous path to a complete life,

resurrection of the dead

and continuing abundant life.
