8. I believe God can and does show up in every human experience.
Fancy seminarian-types would say, “All of life is sacramental.” I believe God is not silent. I believe God is not hidden.

When I worship with Friends, I am challenged to actually expect God to speak right then and there-and to look for God every moment of every day.
