God sends us out into the world -

not to build walls
but to dismantle barriers.

Not to load on chains
but to liberate the oppressed.

Not to close our doors
but to welcome in the stranger.

Not to further fragment the body of Christ
but to re-imagine it.

God sends us out into the world
to live as a sign
of the justice and peace
of his kingdom.
