AbstractThis 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.
