As the institutional Church slowly dies it is up to we who are left - a handful, a dozen - to meet perhaps in private homes for worship and a meal.
There may be no minister, no priest, no hierarchy to govern us.
We must fend for ourselves and do our best with limited resources.
We must share leadership and duties.
In this way we will keep the flame alive until the time when growth begins to come.
But we must not cling to outmoded doctrines and creeds.
We must embrace change and innovation and do our best in our daily lives to reflect the Love of God we experience in worship.
Knowing that the flame is Love.
