Affirmation: The Coming Kingdom

Here’s a 20th century South African creed.  It was posted on the Long Green Valley Church of the Brethren website.

Affirming our Faith

Jesus taught us to speak of hope as the coming of God's kingdom.
We believe that God is at work in our world
turning hopeless and evil situations into good.
We believe that goodness and justice
will triumph in the end
and that tyranny and oppression cannot last forever.
One day all tears will be wiped away;
the lamb will lie down with the lion,
and justice will roll down like a mighty stream.
True peace and true reconciliation are not only desired,
they are assured and guaranteed in Christ.
This is our faith.
This is our hope.
