Week Of July 16th

Father Aidan has left us with this reflection:

 

 

DREAM CHURCH

This is the Church of my dreams —-

The Church of the warm heart,

Of the open mind,

Of the adventurous spirit;

The Church that cares,

That heals hurt lives,

That comforts old people,

That challenges youth;

That knows no division of culture or class;

No frontiers, geographical or social,

The Church that enquires as well as affirms,

That looks forward as well as backward;

The Church of the Master,

The Church of the people;

High as the ideals of Jesus,

Low as the humblest human;

A working Church,

A worshipping Church,

A winsome Church;

A Church that interprets truth in terms of truth;

That inspires courage for this life and hope for the life to come;

A Church of courage;

A Church of all good men ——-

The Church of the living God.
