A creed for the journey…

Still on a ‘travel’ theme, here is a wonderful creed written by Australian writer and theologian Dorothy McRae-McMahon (and found in this book” by Peter Millar):

We believe in God
who takes our smallest moment of hope
and grows it forth like a tree
with spreading branches
for the sheltering of new life.

We believe in Jesus Christ
who walks tall amongst us,
seen in our faces, felt in our hearts,
bedded deep in the longing of our souls
for all that is true, just and full of hope.

We believe in the Holy Spirit
who waits on our moments of openness
and springs into the unknowns
with joy and delight,
that we may be called on
beyond where we thought we could go
where every step is walked on holy ground.

A creed for the journey which reminds us that whatever we face in life we can draw on the amazing grace of the God who travels with us into the unknown… the God of life and hope… the God of joy and delight.
