This article promotes a faith in God determined by our experience and particularly
how we articulate that experience. Postmodernism suggests that language can only
express signifiers and metaphors in the absence of any essential meaning. Therefore,
we are free to create meaning. But we don’t do this alone. We do this in the
context of community. Listening to others’ stories as well as articulating our own
allows for potential and possibility. It gives us an ethic of compassion and ‘mission’.
God then becomes more than an objective existence. God becomes the source and
reason for all of our values and creative action.
