Our Church

Here we are, Lord.  This is our Church.
It is composed of people like us.
We make it what it is.

It will be friendly, if we are.
Its pews will be filled, if we help to fill them.
It will radiate Christ's love, if we do.
It will pass on the Faith, if we share ours.
It will involve many people, if we become involved in its work.
It will make generous gifts to many causes, if we are generous givers.
It will bring other people to worship, if we invite them.

It will be a church of loyalty and love, fearlessness and faith,
a church with a noble spirit if we, who make it what it is, are filled with these.

Therefore, with the help of God, we shall dedicate ourselves to the task
of being all the things we want our Church to be.
