The values of freedom

Liberatus is a community journal about wholeness in politics, because all of us are tired of dysfunction. Citizens who join us are advocates for how the peace of Christ can remake politics from the ground up.

Contemplation

Wisdom prized above all else, deeply knowing who we are in God; seeing evil within before projecting it without; passion born from lament; patiently taking focused action for the flourishing of our culture 

I Peter 1:13

Community

Unity pursued amid diversity for a common purpose; relational humility; forgiving in the knowledge that we have been forgiven 

John 17:20-21

Creativity

Authentically exploring what hasn’t been done before; artistically reflecting the goodness of God in our work; continually growing by tearing down and building up 

Colossians 1:15-17

Simplicity

Complexity’s creative reward when understood and mastered; the spiritual relief of seeking the Kingdom first 

Matthew 6:7-14

Adventure

Endurance in life’s journey; all-around fitness; the joy of intentionally experiencing beauty as we trailblaze new endeavors 

Hebrews 11:13-16

Renewal

Holistic rest when not creating; grateful prayer, confident there is no condemnation; identities at rest as free children of God; letting go to let God's Spirit restore us 

Romans 8:14-15

Excellence

Quality achieved by navigating quantity; truth and beauty integrated, pointing to the life of God in all we create 

Revelation 21:3-4
