Carrying our faith needs the Jesus posture... a posture of gentleness... in its courageous conviction...
God, give us a confidence in you
But let grace keep us from arrogance
God, give us a strength of conviction
But let us share it humbly
God may we believe courageously
But help us carry it gently
Lord, may we go forward with vision
But help us to be careful that we do not abuse your grace to feed our own self righteousness
But use your grace to feed the world’s deepest needs.
