Gathering Words

Here are gathering words from Cheryl Lawrie’s [hold this space] website.

The Gathering

We gather here
as people who have faith
in a story that stretches far before
and beyond us.

It’s a story that tells us that
what we know of life is only
a tiny part of the picture;
that here, who we are is still unfinished.

It’s a story of how God’s redemption and restoration
rewrites what we know of ourselves,
editing our lives with words
of grace and forgiveness
and creating an ending
that speaks only of love.

We gather to worship God.
