Seeking the Faith

In SEEKING THE FAITH we commit ourselves to:

» Opening ourselves to God’s Spirit each day and in new ways
» Encountering God by praying for ourselves and others
» Wrestling with issues of faith, avoiding both simplistic answers and rigid theologies
» Responding to God’s call with energy, intelligence, imagination, and love

» Proclaiming the Good News that in life and in death we belong to God
» Anticipating and meeting the needs of all who enter
» Finding and nurturing God’s gifts in others
» Forgiving ourselves and others for things done and for things left undone
» Encouraging, supporting, and rejoicing with our church family
