The faith we live by in this church searches for truth in our own individual hearts, in our own life experiences, in the many faith traditions and philosophies that nurture us, in the explorations of science. Ours is not a blind faith: It is based neither on creeds, the scriptures of any particular religion, the pronouncements of a church hierarchy, nor the words of any single person. Rather, we submit our beliefs to the test of knowledge, reason, and compassion. Our faith aims to treat all humans irrespective of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or religious belief with caring and respect. Ours is a faith of deeds and commitment to building humane character and love for the natural world. It is a faith of the free mind and the loving heart.

People of spiritual tradition in conflict are likely to have experiences like what Mary Lou Kownacki describes for us when she says: "On my morning walk, my fingers move mindfully, over the wooden beads. In my pocket. Jesus, have mercy. Jesus, have mercy. Stopping on the street to talk with a crazed woman who has twenty-two cats, I forget the beads I forget the mantra. Once again, I fail to follow the prescribed meditation technique. After forty years of practice I still do not know when I am really praying."
