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.

Politics

Peace making is the creative and positive quest for the well-being of humankind and the planet on which people live.

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.
