Today (June 12) is my birthday. I'm renewing my baptismal covenant, both acknowledging what God has done for me that I cannot do for myself and also what my response is to that grace.
In the next year, I will strive to• live among God’s faithful people;
• hear the Word of God and share in the Lord’s Supper;
• proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed;
• serve all people following the example of Jesus; and,
• strive for justice and peace in all the earth.
And I ask God to help and guide me.
