What do you believe?

A question inspired by Barbara Brown Taylor's book The Seeds of Heaven:

Imagine for a moment that it is Sunday morning, and you have just walked outside through the doorway of your church.  A stranger is standing there, looking at your church.  He stops you, and you take the time to have a short conversation with him.

He asks, "What is it that you believe in there?"

How do you answer?

Don't answer me right away.  Give this question some thought.  Be prepared.  The time may come when God sends someone to you to be a witness.  You may not anticipate it ahead of time.

And don't you think that all of us should know the answer to that question, if only for ourselves?

What do you believe?
