An 'Affirmation' for urban living (Dorothy McRae McMahon)

We believe in God whose creativity
is not defeated by concrete or traffic,
but shines forth in the centre of our life.

We believe in Jesus Christ
Who lived as friend and saviour
to the people of the city,
who ate and laughed,
wept and celebrated
with ordinary people like us.

We believe in the Holy Spirit
who dances in the city
as truth and moments of love
who goes between us
with threads of community
and never leaves us without hope.

And we believe in the Church
which is real when it stands open
to the life of the city and bears witness
to the love and justice of God. Amen
