Commitment

Together we gather round the light of Christ

 

Those who are here for the first time

Those who have been here many times before

Those who come regularly

Those who come only on occasions

Those who are yet to join us

Those who no longer come but who remember us

 

Together we gather round the light of Christ

 

Some of us are confident but others feel anxious

Some of us are happy but others are low

Some of us are articulate but others feel tongue tied

Some of us are sure in our faith but others full of doubt

 

Together we gather round the light of Christ and commit ourselves to:

 

Respecting each other and our different experiences

Being open to new ideas and challenging thoughts

Learning from each other and sharing with each other

Seeking to understand the discipline of worship and the wonder of God

 

Together we gather round the light of Christ
