If we fake it, we offer to God nothing but a façade. If we face God honestly by offering our true face to God, we discover in the face of God the face of love. ” The Jesus Creed begins in the face of God, for until we see in the face of God the love God has for us, we will not find the strength to love God, to love ourselves, or to love others. This love begins in the face of God. THE FACE OF INVITATION I know and love the face of my wife, Kris. I don’t have to ask permission to look at her.

The mutual love of the Father, Son, and Spirit form the pattern for the Jesus Creed. The Jesus Creed summons each of us to dance the dance of the Trinity. DANCING Once, Kris persuaded me to take dance lessons. To be sure, some might not call “disco lessons” real dance lessons, but it was the days of Saturday Night Fever, and I went along with her idea and did my best. It became rather obvious that I simply could not dance, so Kris quit trying to persuade me, and I was quite happy to return to something I enjoy: watching others dance.

Abraham simply got to watch and to accept God’s unusual act. ” What appears to us as gruesome was normal for Abraham; what was great was how graphic God got in this act of promise.
