FAITH…

Faith is a journey.

FAITH isn’t a destination; it’s a journey.

RESPECT is the foundation for everything that we do. We start by respecting each other. We respect our friends, our peers, our parents, all life, and all of God’s creation. If we can’t meet the challenge of showing respect, then we’ll fail the other three challenges!

ENGAGE is what we do in order to move ahead. We don’t disengage from life… we fully participate! We engage with each other and with the activities that are presented to us. We understand that the more of ourselves we put into something, the more we’ll get out!

ACCEPT is a word that’s easy to say but hard to live! We strive to accept each other as we are. We want to accept each other because of our differences, not in spite of them. We believe that God made us all unique and loves us all, so the least we can do is accept one another!

LIVE is the final challenge we give ourselves. The only way to share the Good News is to live it every day. And we choose to live the other three challenges every day as well: RESPECT, ENGAGE & ACCEPT. When we add LIVE to the other three, we end up Keeping It REAL!
