IMG_2597We come to “church” to remember who and whose we are, to renew our relationships with God and one another, to praise and to pray. But it’s during the rest of the week that we live out our faith. That’s when you’re likely to see us volunteering at the Not Bread Alone soup kitchen in our dining room, marching and offering blessings at the local Pride Parade, speaking out against racism, working to end climate change, praying for peace, and otherwise loving the world. We call it being God’s hands and feet, and it is founded in our Vision Statement, which we recite together each Sunday:

We are God’s hands and feet. Together we seek to follow the call of Jesus Christ. Empowered by God’s Spirit, we commit ourselves to doing God’s work: seeking justice, loving kindness, making peace and walking humbly together with God.

And then we greet one another heartily with the joyful Peace of Christ.
