Faith elements:

Incarnation, the importance of being physically present and a part of creation, God through Jesus, and the part the disciples and the Church play in offering the presence of Christ to the world. Genesis 1:1-14, John 1:1-14, 

Majesty of Creation which leads to an expansive view and understanding of God. The unveiling of mystery of creation and God allows for greater wonder of God. Genesis  Psalm 8

The importance of Spiritual Disciplines, intentionality of time and purpose in connecting with God and overcoming the Barriers to greater connection and relationship with God. 

Recognizing windows and seasons of time. All times pass, both the mountain and valley seasons in life. Easter faith reminds followers that the only season that is everlasting is eternity in God's Kingdom.  Ecclesiasties 3

Respecting God's ordering of Creation, even if at times difficult or painful. 

As children of God and disciples, being "sensitized to other," as God's children as well. Being open to "others" who look, act, eat, smell etc. different.
