I Believe In the God of Abraham

(found at a church in Bruges Belgium in July 2010)

I believe
In the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
The Living, the Promise

I believe
in the God of Jesus of Nazareth,
the deceased, the tortured, the crucified
then, now, all over the world,
again and again.

I believe
In a God who raises the oppressed
and brings the exiles home.

I believe
In Jesus who gave himself for all mankind
To gather all the scattered children of God
Together in one house.
He is the hope of the world.

I believe
In the God of Jesus,
The risen one, the happy one, the perfect one.
I believe that we will become like Him.

I believe
In the all-embracing Love,
In the Spirit of peace and unity
 who makes us speak the same language
Who will fulfill what was promised to us
He is the Spirit of the promises.
