We started a new year in the Methodist Church on 1st September and some churches have their Covenant service now.
The Covenant prayer says
I am no longer my own but yours.
Your will, not mine, be done in all things,
wherever you may place me,
in all that I do and in all that I may endure;
when there is work for me and when there is none;
when I am troubled and when I am at peace.
Your will be done
when I am valued and when I am disregarded;
when I find fulfillment and when it is lacking;
when I have all things, and when I have nothing.
I willingly offer all I have and am
to serve you, as and where you choose
Glorious and blessèd God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
you are mine and I am yours.
May it be so for ever.
Let this covenant now made on earth
be fulfilled in heaven. Amen.
It feels particularly appropriate this year, as we come out of a pandemic and learn to live with Covid-19, to ask what does God want from us as individuals, churches and the Circuit. It is certainly not ‘back to normal’ as history tells us that is a land we can no longer visit. So where does God want you to journey and what plans has he in store for you this church year?
