We seek to–

:: submit our creativity
to the creativity
of the Creator;

:: continually experience both
the transcendent and
the immanent
of the Christ;

:: be consistently energized
by the ultimate energy
of the Comforter.

We are plowshares,
and pruning hooks;
transformed and
re-shaped from the
best spear and
sword materials.

We love the beauty of God’s creation;
We’re curious and amazed by the
human imagination and creativity.

We dream of a socio-political transformation where,
through active non-violent means, our people can–

:: assert our national sovereignty
and independence
from foreign domination
and control;

:: promote a self-reliant and sustainable
socio-economic development through—
genuine land reform,
nation-building industrialization, and
protection of the environment;

:: uphold the social and economic welfare
of workers, peasants and other
marginalized sectors;

:: guarantee the right to self-determination
of the Bangsamoro, Cordillera and other
indigenous peoples; and,

:: advance a comprehensive policy on
peace negotiations.

We love discussing issues on
environmental care, and
conflict transformation
with close friends over
pure arabica coffee,
or red wine,
or light beer,
or fresh fruit juices.

We feel so proud being the parents of
L’nielle Joy,

We’re sooo in-loved with our grandchildren–
Kiana Gabrielle,
Elia Lynn,
Eyna Crimson,
Kaya Sydelle,
Eve Librada,
Emelia Leonila, and
Zylie Estrella.
