The Covenant is not a contract in which God and human beings agree to provide particular goods and services for each other. It is not something that people have to do to create a relationship with God. God has already made it possible.

Every Church member should be seeking in various ways to renew and expand the opportunities for Christian conversation about the things that matter.
