To bear the image of God is to live the story of God reveling himself to the world. We become agents of liberation, unraveling God's response from Exodus: "I am who I am." In us the undefinable, unbounded, and unpredictable nature of God's identity is played out for the world--revealed to the world as a play is performed for an audience, except in this performance the audience is invited to play along. With our lives, our interaction with one another, and our compassionate response the the need of the world we point to the God of abundant life, eternal community, and ultimate compassion, in whom all things are created and in whom all things are made new again.
Let us invite the world into the performance of God's image with relentless acceptance and openness remembering that "while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us," that we may be the foretaste of God's now-but-not-yet kingdom on earth.
