Christians follow Jesus’ example in naming God in intimate, relational terms. As baptized Christians, we follow Jesus in calling God Father; we claim kinship with God, creator and source.

We live in the Spirit, the animating giver of life, the sustainer and sanctifier, who urges us from within to participate in bringing to fulfillment all that God has begun in creation and revealed in Jesus the Christ.
