Give me a church

 

Lord, 

Give me a church 
I can, at last, belong to –

A place where people 
Want to grow like you;

Where people love, fall out, 
Make up, say sorry;

Where everyone who fails 
Can start anew. 

None of this ever happened 
With my mother –

She never said sorry
For how she treated me.

So, give me a church 
Where I can find a home, Lord,

Where all can share your love,
Which sets us free.

We will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15; NLT).

If another member of the church sins against you, go and point out the fault when the two of you are alone. If the other person listens and confesses it, you have won that person back (Matthew 18:15; NRSV).

Even the sparrow finds a home, and the swallow builds her nest and raises her young at a place near your altar (Psalm 84:3; NLT).

The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love (Galatians 5:6; NIV). 

The oppressed will be set free (Luke 4:18; NLT).

I'd love to hear from you...
