Affirmation of Faith for Amos 9

We believe and trust that, one day, God will make all things right.

That pain will wash away in peace, that anger will disappear in divine love.

That starvation will give way to abundance, and hunger to satisfaction.

We believe that God is at work, even now, to destroy death and pain and misery with life and joy and gladness.

We also believe that we are called to do our part, to feed the hungry, to welcome the outcast, to forgive those who do us wrong, to stand up for justice and mercy in this world.

Until he comes again, we will do his work, trusting that his victory is our victory, and that our hope will be rewarded with endless joy.
