1 Jesus Christ is our center and example for life.
2 By encountering the living presence of God in prayer and contemplation, we begin to experience the world prophetically, as Jesus does.
3 The prophetic imagination cannot be understood apart from the lived experiences of marginalized and oppressed people—including but not limited to those who are people of color, queer, trans, femmes, gender nonconforming, Muslim, formerly and currently incarcerated, cash poor and working class, disabled, undocumented, and immigrant.
4 Imperial structures and myths seek to alienate us from one another, from the rest of creation, and from our Creator.
5 Therefore, empowered by the Spirit, we will actively resist forces of alienation.
6 As we encounter God in the midst of this struggle, we find new ways of human flourishing, for deep praxis deepens our prophetic imagination and shows us that a new world is possible.
7 We become most like Jesus when we bring our full selves and deepening creative capacity into the task of co-creating the new world.
