What Moves Us

We are led into this work by grace, love and respect for the dignity of every person.

The grace of God, offered to all, moves through us to others. We share God’s grace from a perspective that none of us has earned anything and all of us are inherently worthy of all good gifts by nature of our shared humanity.

Love is the verb that drives us, and loving our neighbor is at the root of what we do.

Every person is created in the image of God and worthy, by their personhood and not through any special merit, to be treated with respect and compassion, and to maintain agency over their own lives.

This leads us to attend to people holistically, including their physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional needs.

It leads us to engage warmly and with empathy. It compels us to listen and not make assumptions about others’ experience and their sense of what they need. We are called to be open to all.
