The Minneapolis Creed---
We believe in Justice Mother,
the all inclusive Maker of good self esteem.
And in Jesus,
The only name we recognize from the Bible
He was conceived in an alternative committed relationship
And became person.
He was crucified, died, and was buried.
On the third day his ideals were raised in the minds of his friends.
He "Ascended" into "Heaven" and sits there with the heavenly Parent
But since there is no judgment, he shan't be back.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, Sophia.
She serves as a great rationale for whatever we want to do.
With the Parent and the Child she is used for furthering our agenda.
We believe in one church, as long as it agrees with us,
One baptism for the extinction of sins.
We look for the conversion of those less enlightened,
And a life of full inclusion of all who agree with us
Rev. Zolner is the Associate Rector of Youth and Young Adults at Grace and St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
MoreI suggested to Rev. Zolner that he could end it, in the alternative with "Let it Be" in place of Amen. He responded "Or, maybe more appropriately, the end should just say, 'or whatever.'"
