though we don’t always act like it.
Sometimes we feel like we live in chaos,
and it’s scary—we get frustrated.
We know God is always with us and has a plan,
even when we can’t tell.
We are going to help others whenever we can
We hope that others will have compassion for us,
like we try to have for others.
We commit to being in community, even when it’s messy.
And we will learn from one another with humility.
We do this because we’re trying to follow God’s call—God who is always with me.
Loving one another will be hard, but we will do it anyways.
