My Church is composed
of people like me.
I help make it what it is.
It will be friendly,
if I am.
Its pews will be filled,
if I help fill them.
It will do good work,
if I work.
It will make generous gifts to many causes,
if I am a generous giver.
It will bring other people into its worship
if I invite and bring them.
It will be a Church of loyalty and love,
of fearlessness and faith,
and a Church with a noble spirit,
if I, who make it what it is,
am filled with the same things.
Therefore, with the help of God,
I shall dedicate myself to the task
of being all things that I want my Church to be.
