That God is infinitely more interested in the promise of our future than the mistakes of our past.
That the Church embraces and encourages those who are suffering or looking for answers to life.
That the Church is broad enough to encompass those firmly holding traditional beliefs as well as those questioning the essence of belief.
That worshiping together is what it means to be a church: we gather to engage in ritual that invites the mystery of belief into our hearts and to be reminded of the stories of those who have gone before.
That it is at the end of our worship service that our service begins.
