And the congregation said "Amen"

These things are true, I believe, for all humans regardless of sexuality, gender, color, caste, creed, insert favorite label here.


Six Soulforce Beliefs About Myself


1. I am a child of a loving Creator, a daughter or a son of the Soulforce at the center of the universe.
2. I am loved by my Creator exactly as I am. My sexual orientation is not a sickness to be healed nor a sin to be forgiven. My sexual orientation is a gift from my Creator to be accepted, celebrated, and lived with integrity.
3. I am not an accident. I have a purpose. I was shaped by my Creator to love God and to assist in God's eternal struggle to win justice for all Her children who suffer injustice.
4. I will not discover my purpose nor realize my power (my own soulforce) until I join my Creator in doing justice (making things fair for all.)
5. When I join my Creator in doing justice, my own life will be renewed, empowered, and made more meaningful.
6. In serving others, it is as much my moral obligation to refuse to cooperate with evil as it is to cooperate with good.

SEVEN "SOUL FORCE" BELIEFS ABOUT MY ADVERSARY

1. My adversary is also a child of the Creator; we are both members of the same human family; we are sisters and brothers in need of reconciliation.
2. My adversary is not my enemy, but a victim of misinformation as I have been.
3. My only task is to bring my adversary truth in love (nonviolence) relentlessly.
4. My adversary's motives are as pure as mine and of no relevance to our discussion.
5. My worst adversary has an amazing potential for positive change.
6. My adversary may have an insight into truth that I do not have.
7. My adversary and I will understand each other and come to a new position that will satisfy us both, if we conduct our search for truth guided by the principles of love.
