“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” -Mahatma Gandhi
“An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”-Mahatma Gandhi
“The Bible isn’t there simply to be an accurate reference point for people who want to be sure they’ve got things right. It is there to equip God’s people to carry forward His purpose of new covenant and new creation” (N.T. Wright).
ALL: I am no longer my own, but yours. Put me to what you will, place me with whom you will. Put me to doing, put me to suffering. Let me be put to work for you or set aside for you, Praised for you or criticized for you. Let me be full, let me be empty. Let me have all things, let me have nothing. I freely and fully surrender all things To your glory and service. And now, O wonderful and holy God, Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer, You are mine, and I am yours. So be it. And the covenant which I have made on earth, Let it also be made in heaven. Amen
