You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength.
We at the Old Meeting House strive to serve God and one another
fully, with all our hearts, souls, minds and strength.
With all our hearts
God’s grace comes to us all in different ways. We believe
that when our hearts are touched, God is speaking to us. Through
worship and prayer we strive to open our hearts to receive
God’s love, compassion and forgiveness.
With all our souls
Our souls are nourished in diverse ways. For some people it
is through serving others, for some through music, dance and
art. Still others feel their souls strengthened through contemplative
practice and prayer. Our worship services encourage exploration,
celebration and thankfulness.
With all our minds
Believing that intellectual questioning and study are foundational
to faith formation, we encourage honest and open examination
of the scriptures, Christian traditions and varying faith
With all our strength
We believe ourselves called to serve others and love our neighbors
with all our strength. Gathered together, with open hearts,
souls and minds:
We covenant with God and with one another
and do bind ourselves in the presence of God
to walk together in all God’s ways, ever watchful
for how God’s blessed word of truth
shall be reveal unto us.
