we are all this… and more

off to port phillip maximum security prison this afternoon, to worship with the men there…

we are sinners… we are not only sinners
we are weak… we are not only weak
we fail… we are not always failures
we have destroyed… also we have loved

you, God, do not limit us to the stories by which the world knows us

you see much more in us than the labels we give ourselves

give us courage to defy all expectations
– especially our own –

and in your love become all of who we are.
