Fall Program 2021 Opening Statement


Opening Statement



I believe in the power of the Spirit to minister to us through our prayers and the prayers of others. Therefore, I will commit to pray for us,
both in and out of group times.



I will attempt to increasingly disclose who I am to you. I will share my feelings, struggles, hopes, joys, and sorrows, as I am able. I understand that the greater my openness the more God can love and touch me.



I want this to be a safe place for you. Therefore, I will attempt to be
sensitive to your feelings and respond to you in healthy ways.



I will hold you with an open hand. I will give both you and me time,
grace, and forgiveness to grow towards these commitments
as our mutual trust builds with one another.
