We recognize that embracing diversity and 归属感 requires work and intentional, collective growth. For such complex and difficult work, we expect differences in ideas and opinions, and we strive to be a place where respectful discourse occurs. Our focus is not on whether an idea or action can be categorized as politically conservative or liberal: our focus is on discerning how to be a community of faith, hope and love that bears witness to the way of Jesus. We wrestle with significant questions, 具有挑战性的, 测试, 并对它们进行评估, 当我们积累知识时, 希望还有智慧. We do not do this in isolation, but in community with God’s transforming love at work within us. 用这种姿势, we believe we can continue to see the image of God in each other and work together on both immediate solutions and long-term change.

We are thankful that God’s gracious invitation, offered to all through Jesus’ life, 死亡, 和复活, is not only about forgiveness but also continual transformation in the Holy Spirit. We trust that the Holy Spirit is at work among us and guiding us to embrace God’s call toward justice, 义, and becoming a community of diversity & 归属感.
