Credence 1920 1280 Patrick Connors

I believe in God, whom we may worship in any way fitting, as long as it is a dogma based on reverence; tolerance and respect for all; a spirit which yearns for compassion and peace.

I believe in the dream Dr. King conceived. And if, indeed, it is to come to pass, our nation, Canada, shall be where it happens.

I believe in art, in truth, and beauty. All to which I humbly aspire.

I believe we are as saints when we are in fellowship.

I believe in the intrinsic ultimate goodness of all creation. Even the things that really tempt and test us.

Because I believe these things make us better.

I believe that much of what we think is wrong, though most of what we know in our hearts is right.

I believe in the life that is and especially in the one to come.
