Promise of Life

Breathe Initiative 3: The Promise of Life

What does a simpler life look like in the 21st Century?

Who will join with us if we’re willing to give it a go?

The Promise of Life is our next step towards answering those questions.  It’s not a list of rules but a covenant of aspirations, for people who want to move towards a simpler lifestyle.


The Promise of Life

Because life is a gift, we live it thankfully
Savour what we have
Pray for what we need.
No longer hurried, distracted, or worried,
We’ll walk through each moment with God.

Because everything is a gift, we live with open hands,
Tread lightly on the earth
Share freely our homes and our things.
No longer restlessly chasing identity,
We’ll be known by our love not our logos.

Because giving is a gift we live generously,
Give ourselves deeply to family and community,
Give joyfully to those in need.
No longer caught in the consumer dream
We’ll invest our all in the kingdom of love.
