Ancient Worship ~ Open Minds ~ Come Inside ~ Make a Difference

Generous God, whose way is love, whose truth is searching, whose life is freely given in Jesus Christ our Lord: as you have opened for us your house of many rooms, so may we make a place for the rejected and unloved, and share the work of peace; through Jesus Christ, the image of God. Amen.

Word for the Week ~ Truth
The way that leads to life is first of all hearing from Jesus the Truth about ourselves. The truest thing about each one of us is that we were created in the very image of God, and that we were made for Life and Love.
