We Believe – Tony Kriz

We believe in a faith that is marked by personal transformation.

We believe in a faith that is not fueled by a self-serving agenda.

We believe in a faith that is as true in actions as in words.

We believe in a faith that leads to a haggard life.

We believe in a faith that happens in dialogue not monologue.

We believe in a faith that experiences poverty for the other.

We believe in a faith that joins the marginalized.

We believe in a faith that transforms communities as well as individuals.

We believe in a faith that exists for the poor as well as the rich.

We believe in a faith that is for the forgotten as well as the popular.

We believe in a faith that is for the anonymous as well as the famous.

We believe in a faith that is for the beaten as well as the abuser.

We believe in a faith that brings hope.
