New Year Affirmations

Posted on 2nd January 2021

I used to use these affirmations regularly in my prayers as a member of the Iona Community.

Whilst I no longer am a member they still stir my faith and explain what I am trying to believe.

I offer them to us all at Christchurch as we journey into a fresh year with many uncertainties ahead of us. May they comfort and guide us in 2021.

 

Rev John Rackley

 

With the whole Church

we affirm that we are made in God’s image

Befriended by Christ, empowered by the Spirit.

With people everywhere

we affirm God’s goodness at the heart of humanity,

planted more deeply than all that is wrong.

With all creation

we celebrate the miracle and wonder of life,

and the unfolding purposes of God

for ever at work in ourselves and the world.
