To Remember Our Promises
Bring who you are as you enter our church this morning.
Bring your best self and your struggling self;
bring your mistakes and your triumphs;
bring your shortcomings and your recommitment to good.
Bring yourself here and open your heart to beauty, to truth,
to the door that is open to the presence of God.
Here in this church we are trying to walk together on the peaceable way;
trying to hammer out division, and hatred, and all that separates one from another.
We try, and we will fall short, but held in love, we try again.
We come together this morning, as a church, to bow our heads in prayer,
to raise our voices in song,
to remember our promises and vow to live by them once again.
