The title is not a typo. Yes, usually, you would find a page that takes up a good amount of screen real estate talking about the history of the organization (we have that over here if you’re interested). Others may use the “about us” page to talk about how great the organization is as if to sell you on joining or participating.
But the truth of the matter is, we believe Jesus Christ started a radical rethinking of life and love not by talking about how great it is to believe in him, but by how much he showed he believed in the people he came to know. His belief in them ignited their capacity to believe in him in response. “You did not choose me,” Jesus said, “I chose you!”
So, this page is about you. You’re here because you’re searching for something… Answers? Peace of mind? Friends? A safe space to practice being kind to others? You wouldn’t be alone if that’s why you’re here and considering checking us out in person or online.
Let’s confess something right away, though. We do not profess to have the answers to your life’s problems. What many of us have found to be even more helpful than answers is the ability to be a caring presence for one another when life doesn’t seem to make sense or doesn’t seem to be fair. Many of us have experienced peace of mind, friendship, and a safe space in this community because we’re practicing life not being “about us” but rather about you–about you knowing that God believes in you, that God loves you, and that we would love to know more about this “you” that God finds so endearing.
