Jesus saves us into the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, which is the foretaste of God’s coming kingdom.
Thus the Spirit justifies us into the Body of Christ;
So are we saved into the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church;
We are saved into the Communion of Saints, past, present, and future;
We are saved into a way of life, the way of Jesus;
We are saved into the practices of Jesus–
Practices of peace, justice, compassion, and loving-kindness.
We are saved into the fruit and gifts of the Spirit.
We are saved into the broken Body of Christ.
Therefore, negotiating our shared wounds is part of our life-long learning curve.
Come Holy Spirt, Lord, Giver of Life.
