Affirmation: Love


Here’s a responsive affirmation of faith from Roddy Hamilton.

Affirmation of Faith

ALL:     We believe in a word
            that forms on the lips of the creator
            and echoes in our souls:
            a word that is LOVE.

MEN:    We believe in a word
            that breaks the silence of evil
            and disturbs the noise of ignorance:
            a word that is LOVE.

WOMEN: We believe in a word
            that brings life out of death
            and laughter with the morning:
            a word that is LOVE.

MEN:    We believe in a word
            that tears up the darkness
            flooding it with light:
            a word that is LOVE.

WOMEN: We believe in a word
            that speaks to all loneliness
            with self-giving compassion and care:
            a word that is LOVE.

ALL:     We believe in a word
            that speaks to our futures
            calling us by name,
            to trust anew,
            and believe once more
            in a word
            called LOVE.
