Last week, our parish launched a five-week initiative to promote spiritual growth. We called it "The Covenant of One" because everyone's being asked to offer God each week an hour of prayer, an hour of service, and one hour's wages.
I will post the hand-outs (developed by parishioners) on my blog each week .
One wonderful part of the initiative is a hymn with lyrics written by a parishioner just for the Covenant of One. Each verse develops an aspect of this new approach to stewardship. Our choirs introduced the hymn this week, and for the next month the congregation will sing it each Sunday using cards we're placing in the pews.
Take a look! The tune will be familiar to many as "Tell Out My Soul." (Click on the music for a full view.)
