Guided by the Holy Spirit, with open minds and hearts,
we celebrate and share the love of Jesus Christ,
and are instruments of God’s grace, and peace.
We welcome and celebrate all who join us—the young and the old, the rich and the poor,
the gay and the straight, the strong and the weak, the meek and the brave—and though we
are different one from another, we are united in loving and praising God and in loving each other.
