Transformation

We experience transformation as we serve to advance the aesthetic, intellectual and juridical triumph of chivalric  faith over all its foes, remaking the world into a place dripping with immortal, sophisticated, spell-bindingly beautiful, theanthropormorophic adult glory.    Matthew 12:21b . …and in his name the Gentiles will hope.   Ephesians 1:13-14.  In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory.   Colossians 1:11-14, 23.  May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.…if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation under heaven.

Transformation That Compels Us to Serve

The transformation of individuals, society and creation from glory to glory joyfully stirs us to serve the Church and the world with a courageous, persevering and tenacious resolve to form communities that shine like the sun as colonies of heaven on earth.

Transformation inspires us in the fifth movement of the Liturgy and in our lifestyle practice of serving to:

  • See the purpose of the restoration of all things as their coming into unity in Christ.
  • Advance and build out the Kingdom in every area of thought and life.
  • See the historical development of the Kingdom being from the Garden to the City.
  • Embrace the multi-generational quest to advance the Kingdom of God among the nations.
  • Affirm that individuals, society and creation will not be transformed by worldly power or might.
  • Affirm that Christlike chivalry crushes evil in ways that restore both the victim and the villain.
  • Affirm that Christ ends the unjust accumulation of power in social structures for power’s sake.
  • Constantly and tenaciously seek to make disciples who increase in the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • Deny that any power of individuals, society or creation can ultimately subvert divine destiny.
  • Affirm that the destiny of all is to reign, shining like the sun in the Kingdom of our Father.
  • Affirm that the destiny of all individuals is released in the experience and process of Theosis.
  • See the Church as the community of Theosis, the corollary of the Incarnation.
  • Be determined, tenacious, visionary and intent on seeing God’s kingdom come on earth.
  • Persevere against all odds in the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • Follow Christ in doing only what we see the Father doing and say only what we hear Him saying.
  • Be patient and relaxed in carrying out our mission, not compelled to force it.
  • Have an organic way of ecclesiastically releasing initiatives to grow into Basileian jurisdictions.
  • Be Hosts who offer hospitality to all already within and to those yet beyond the Church.
  • Be Ambassadors who advance the Kingdom through our vocational callings.
  • Be Voluntary Exiles who travel to the edges of established expressions of Christendom.
