Mission That They May Be One As We Are One Where Is It Taking Us?
WHO ARE WE IN GOD AND WHO IS GOD IN US? We are seekers who are drawn by grace to a common source, a common well, and in this sense, we are on a pilgrimage, a journey. We are diverse in so many ways: history, class, race, gender, sexual orientation, culture, ethnicity. Each of us brings to the well our particular talents, resources, and a network of relationships. We have a “golden rule” that we aspire to keep. We come to this common source as a community gathering at St. Peter’s in Chelsea, at this moment in time seeking healing, wholeness, connection, and to be renewed, refreshed, fed and nourished. We come to the well, but it is God who draws us there; it is God who calls us there; God who moves us; God, who is the source, the wellspring, and the water.
WHO ARE WE IN GOD AND WHO IS GOD IN US? We are a community of healers and seekers on a pilgrimage to and with God, moved by God’s grace. We choose to live by the “Golden Rule”. We also value relationships and view them as a way to connect with God, help others connect with God, and cultivate a spirit of grace within our own community. There is also a deeply rooted pain and fear of vulnerability that blocks us from seeking who God is in us stemming from feelings of unworthiness and shame. Overall, we focused on the importance of grace and our journey to the well (source of God).
