Liturgy around the Creed

The words here have been created as the exploration unfolds.

Faith: Unplugged - a new creed I

(using hymn 145)

Created during worship with suggestions from the Sunday School


We believe in a faith, unplugged
where we find God
made all of love
just love
and who made us all
with the same love
A God who is… loving, listening, caring
We believe each of us
is a picture of God,
for God made each of us as we are


All sing: God made me as I am…

We believe in a faith, unplugged
where we find God
made all of love
just love
and who shows us what love is like
in the story of Jesus
who made love a way of living and transforming everything.
A God who is… with us as a friend
We believe each of us
is a picture of God,
for God made each of us as we are

 

All sing: God made me as I am…

We believe in a faith, unplugged
where we find God
made all of love
just love
and full of spirit:
a creative, imaginative,
renewing, transforming spirit
alive in each of us.
a God who is… helpful, like Jesus, living
We believe each of us is a picture of God
for God made us as we are

 

All sing: God made me as I am…
