every mistake we make is an opportunity to learn

Yesterday I was asked to expound on my faith and theology. I forgot to mention Jesus, and apparently after I left, some people drew attention to the fact.
I have been trying since that moment (as I walked away I realised my omition) to distill my faith and theology into an answer I won't fumble. This is what I came up with.

If theology is faith seeking understanding, at this point in my journey of faith, I understand God as
Creator Wisdom Spirit
source of life, love and grace
revealed in the stories of creation, Jesus, and community
known as transforming mystery, healing embrace, the cry of and for freedom.

with a sigh of relief at having found, at last, some words to express the inexpressible connection to the Divine.
