The Journey We Continue
Our commitment as a community
Those joining or continuing in membership commit to one another at our annual Rededication Service in January using the following:
THE JOURNEY WE CONTINUE
The founders of the Corrymeela Community were inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus. They sought a way out of the destructive patterns of ‘us versus them’ and found hope in his message of God’s reconciling love.
Today, as pilgrims of various traditions and beliefs we continue the journey they started, working towards a society whose priorities are justice, mutual respect, the participation of all, concern for the vulnerable and stranger, stewardship of resources, and care for creation.
Together we journey towards reconciliation,
seeking guidance from the teachings of Jesus, the wisdom of other traditions, and the lessons of
offering and receiving hospitality;
learning from one another, particularly when we disagree;
addressing our complicity in the brokenness of the world;
remembering our interdependence with all living things;
giving as we can to the needs of the community;
being challenged, changed and healed through our relationships with others;
and attempting to extend to everyone (including ourselves) love, grace and forgiveness.
