Another personal religious post, just because it's occupying my mind right now. I was asked to produce for this Sunday's church bulletin a short statement on why I chose to join the Moravian Church. This is what I came up with:
"I believe that language is an imperfect tool to understand God and the mystery of salvation, and that the central revelation we are given as Christians is in the life of Jesus Christ. The Moravian Church shares the implications of this belief in their acceptance of many creeds and the motto, 'In essentials unity; in nonessentials liberty; in all things love.' Moravians have maintained Christian unity without losing the core of their faith, and developed a tradition which allows for the expression of fundamental principles across both time and space. In this way, they seem to live up to the description of Wisdom in Proverbs 3:17, 'Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace.'"
