*Hymn                                “As a Fire Is Meant for Burning” (Vs 1)                        TFWS #2237

As a fire is meant for burning with a bright and warming flame,

so the church is meant for mission, giving glory to God’s name.

Not to preach our creeds or customs, but to build a bridge of care,

We join hands across the nations, finding neighbors everywhere.
