… seeking and serving Christ in all persons, and loving our neighbors as ourselves; by striving for justice and peace among all people, and respecting the dignity of every human being.
Our Baptismal Covenant calls us to find ways to step out, to bear witness to Christ, love our neighbor, and respect the dignity of ever human being. It is a call to live out our beliefs through the choices we make.
This call is as profound as looking into the eyes of students at St. Patrick’s Episcopal School in Haiti and acknowledging their humanity. It is as simple as taking time to be a part of the lives of children who come to Santa Maria Urban Ministry in San Jose to learn, study and have fun in a safe place. It can be expressed as writing notes of encouragement, or cooking brownies, for service men and women in harm’s way who we will never know.
Whoever you are, wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here.
