An Enduring Legacy
The word of the Lord endures forever. We believe this, and so we seek an enduring nature. We won't be washed away by a rising tide or a blowing wind, we will plant ourselves and grow, marked by endurance. We believe in the classics, the things that have roots. We dig to the foundation, and we seek with a great calling and duty to learn. We seek things that can stand and have stood the test of time.
May people flourish in the cities like the grass of the field.
We see grandeur in the natural world, and beauty in the way it is ordered, in the way we've been placed here with great purpose. We seek to grow, using what we've been given. We are not in a place that came about by accident. We are not manufactured. We are living and vibrant, we grow and seek to build more growth. Just as the flowers of the fields grow from dirt, sunlight, and water, we grow in this city, in awe of the world around us, where we have been planted.
A Diverse Community
We know we are part of a larger story. A story in which each of us is valuable, each of us is inspired, and each of us has a duty to contribute and to grow. Together, we help each other grow. We were not placed in this city by chance, we were placed as neighbors. We love each other as neighbors, as ourselves. We have a responsibility to serve each other and to be gracious when others serve us. We share laughs, ideas, accomplishments, and failures with each other, and together, we are stronger. As one grows, we all grow. Though we are not all alike, we are all here on purpose, with purpose.
