    Politics

    God seeks to transform relationship with and between people. If politics is about how we choose to live together and to treat one another, there is surely a place for discerning the activity of God in politics.

    Religion

    The Covenant is not a contract in which God and human beings agree to provide particular goods and services for each other. It is not something that people have to do to create a relationship with God. God has already made it possible.

    Views

    Male and female have common humanity, having equal worth in the eyes of God. The erroneous notion that one gender is superior to another should be rejected.
