Further Reflections on Confessions and Statements of Faith References

God calls his children from many sources, languages, nations, and from a variety of social standings and personal needs. The Confessions are very clear on this. Belgic Confession teaches in Article 27, “This holy church is not confined, bound, or limited to a certain place or certain people.” Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 30 reminds us, “The Spirit gathers people from every tongue, tribe and nation...” and in paragraph 34 teaches that “all are welcome…the homeless…the broken…the sinner…the despised…the least…and the last…”

Words of Praise

Optional readings (from 2 Cor. 4:7; Ps. 22:3)
But we have this treasure in jars of clay
to show that this all-surpassing power
is from God and not from us.
You are enthroned as the Holy One;
you are the one Israel praises.
