From our neighborhood and to the nations, Timothy will embrace the God-given value in all people by listening to others, loving as Jesus has loved us, living a daily faith in Jesus Christ, leading others to find healing for their lives.
Because Jesus has comes as crucified and risen king, a new world has begun. Participating with Jesus, we will work to bring his healing of the world in injustice, poverty, public square, economics, creation, by bringing his healing and forgiveness and new starts. And so bring the hope and life of God to people here and now. And so we listen to the pain of all, sacrificially love all, live a practical daily faith for all, lead others to him and find healing in their life as they come to listen to God, love others as they have been loved, bring this faith into their lives, and lead others to Christ from our neighborhood to the nations.
