Here to love God and people
Based on 1 Corinthians 13 v4-7
We are here to... be patient with each other and to be kind to one another.
We will not envy the blessings that others receive, or boast about those that we receive.
We do not think we are better than other people, and we will not speak or act as if they are less important than us.
We will not try to win arguments or score points against each other - we will not speak over the voices of others in discussion or insist on having our own way when decisions need to be made.
We will not be irritable with each other or resentful of each other - we will not keep a score of offences nor relate to each other on the basis of (real or imagined) past hurts against us.
We will not rejoice when we see others slip and fall but we will rejoice in hearing, speaking, believing and living in the light of God’s truth about them and about ourselves.
We will bear with one another and with the trials that God allows into our lives, enduring for the sake of our love for one another, for Him, and His endless love for us.
We will choose to trust each other, having faith in each other - always believing and hoping for the best in (and for) each other but, above all, we will persevere in love for each other.
