In the path of this obedience

people and their communities

the power of God, who in Christ is reconciling the world to

himself. And in this path God forms us in the likeness of

Christwho gave himself for the redemption of the world.

and diligently worked at in a Christ-

like, servant manner as the Spirit provides direction, God

uses them to bring LIFE.
