The following Howard Thurman quotes are currently under consideration for inclusion into Coburg Uniting Church's new Mission Statement:
"The movement of the Spirit of God in the hearts of men and women often calls them to act against the spirit of their times or causes them to anticipate a spirit which is yet in the making. In a moment of dedication, they are given wisdom and courage to dare a deed that challenges and to kindle a hope that inspires."
"To help people live deliberately from their true spiritual self, to follow their bliss and become the person they were intended to be; to help them grow into a stronger sense of self and belonging, meaning and hope; into 'the same mind that was in Christ'."
"We will create social inclusion through food, music, compassion, and embodying a Spirit of blessing; a God who comes to bless."
