Fall Program 2021 Opening Statement

 

Opening Statement

_________________________________________________­­___

PRAYER

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.

 

OPENNESS

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.

 

SENSITIVITY

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.

 

OPEN HAND

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.
