We believe that this is because we were created in the
image of something greater and more magnificent than
we could ever imagine...
A trinity of persons, to be exact, that are in perfect
communion with each other and co-authored the creation

created. This is our reason for being.
may be where you find it, but it is a collection of
absolutes that aren't malleable regardless of where
they are discovered. For truth to be what it should,
it is to be without tarnish or blemish. Tarnished truth
sheds all ideals of reliability when it changes from
perspective to perspective or situation to situation.
Truth must be perfect and should be sought relentlessly.
Without truth, there is nothing.
Unchanging, unrelenting Truth retains power and dignity
regardless of perspective or situation. It is absolutely
timeless and transcends temporal observences. It can
be trusted and is paramount to the ideals of faith.
To have no absolutes is still absolute. To reason away
truth through experience or perspective may soothe the
conscience, but it doesn't quiet the soul.
our needs are numerous, our very primal needs are few
when considered in the grand scheme of it all. Even
the basic staples of water and food seem irrelevent
to survival considering the fact that we can exist for
days without the first and weeks without the second.
But without hope, survival is even further diminished.
It is as intangible as a cool summer breeze, but nearly
as essential as the air that comprises it.
To gaze at the horizon that a new day brings without
hope of fulfillment is nothing short of lethal. We walk
on borrowed time when our trust in that distant glimpse
is lost. After all, why should we continue to exist
when our reason for it is no longer there to cling to?
Hope is often all that we may ever have and thankfully
all that we may ever need. Without it strength dissipates,
will dies and reason lays ravished. Cling to it, and
we continue to put one foot in front of the other, rising
to greater heights and perservering in spite of circumstances
rather than succumbing to them.
When we are in touch with the ideal of hope we become
in tune with the very essence of our being. We've been
granted the desire of our hearts through it in the personage
of Christ and his beautiful and tragic work that brings
us the hope of eternity. Acceptence of this rights our
waywardness for the present and makes priceless our
very act of our origin is the process of our existence.
We are obligated to value the act that brought us into
existence. To not do so denies a basic element of our
The Creator is honored when his creation participates
freely in the creative process to bring him glory. It
is who we are because it is who he is, and we are made
to be like him.
Let your hands, mouth, feet, mind imitate the master
artist who wove the landscapes of our world, the great
virtuoso who weaves sound and motion in the wind and
the waves and the songs of the masses, the omiscient

Imagine. Dream. Create. Bring honor to the very one
who birthed us by emulating who he is by doing what
it we're nothing and with it all things are possible.
It is our most valued possession, yet it cannot be bought

Hypocrisy is the most elusive human disease. But love
crosses all barriers, heals all wounds and cures all
ills. It dismantles hostility without words and constructs
beauty in its wake.
Without love, there is truly no life, no purpose, nothing.
With it, we are to never yield, and through it we empty
self. Our fate is sealed without it and is only worthwhile
with it. It is to be sought after with all our being.
