A Brief Confession of Faith (65-73)

One: In a broken and fearful world

All:  the Spirit gives us courage to pray without ceasing,

One: to witness among all peoples to Christ as Lord and Savior,

All:  to unmask idolatries in Church and culture,

One: to hear the voices of peoples long silenced,

All: and to work with others for justice, freedom, and peace.

One: In gratitude to God, empowered by the Spirit,

All: we strive to serve Christ in our daily tasks

       and to live holy and joyful lives,

One: even as we watch for God’s new heaven and new earth,

         praying, “Come, Lord Jesus!”
