It is not always easy to know who you are. There are many voices that seek to shape and define us. And it is true, we are many things at once: Christians, citizens, children, parents, spouses, men, women, employees or employers, and so on. But what is the red thread that runs through it all? What is it that defines us and enables us to act in faith, hope, and love?
As people who died and rose in the waters of baptism we are free to live a life that does not seek its own gain but that seeks to love God and to love my neighbour as myself.
When we gather in worship we remember that this is our story, that this is who we are.
