This I Believe

I believe that God is perfect and beyond comprehension. I believe that there is that of God in everyone, but no one other than God is perfect. I believe that if people surrender to God's will, God will lead them.

I believe that God is everywhere. I see God in nature and in the good that people do around meespecially when they don't think anyone is paying attention.

I believe in the Trinity. I believe that Jesus is a physical incarnation of God, but also that "son of God" is too restrictive a label. I recognize the Holy Spirit as the feminine side of God and I feel her all around me. I believe that the Bible is inspired by God, but written by men, with all the mistakes that men make when they are trying to understand the Divine.

I believe that God loves me and wants me to be the best version of myself. I believe that God speaks to me and sometimes uses me to speak to others. I believe that God has plans for me and that God is proud of me when I am faithful.

Because I am human, I know that I will make mistakes. But I will do my best to follow God's will, and I know that God will do great things.


  1. You go, girl! Was this for the NPR project?

  2. Hi Staśa,

    No, it's not for NPR, though I did borrow the name from that (and I really like the podcast). I actually wrote this after a steering committee meeting when we were wondering whether Friends at UFM would be willing to share how they see God. I figured it wouldn't be fair to ask others to do that if I wasn't willing to!
