In common with many communities within Christianity we have three vows, which we understand as life-giving principles, not rules, to help us love God and all of creation wholeheartedly.
Resisting greed, possessiveness and the desire to selfishly manipulate people or creation, we are bold to give all we have for God.
Giving to God our whole being, respecting every person and being available to all with generosity and openness.
Obedience is the joyful abandonment of ourselves to God. The root of obedience is attentive listening. We honor those in certain roles and work with them to build up the common good. We respect each person and their role, and relate to them as an organ in a human body relates to every other organ.
