I am called to help others theologically frame their world, but I should never dictate what they must believe. This means working with people where they are at, in communities that are far from perfect but that continue to struggle to find out how they can best love God and neighbor. We are all learning, we are all in process, journeying together towards a better understanding of how God is acting in our lives and the world. My task is not to change people; only God can do that. My charge as a leader of the church is to introduce people to God and to walk with them on our shared journey of faith.
