You Are A Blessing
You Are A Blessing

Non-Binary Thinking

  • "Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbour as yourself?"
  • "Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?"

- Baptismal Vows, Book of Alternative Services, 1985, p. 159

These are from the vows the community repeats with every Baptism, by which all are welcomed into the Body of Christ.  Perhaps the most important word in these vows is the word "all".  It is an inescapable mandate. All who sincerely seek Christ in their  lives are welcome in this community.
