I will be in them and you will be in me so that they will be completely one.

Then the world will know that you sent me and that you loved them

just as much as you loved me.  – John 17:23 (Jesus’ Prayer)

Vision: Imagine a world in which every single human  being is unconditionally loved and all recognize and exercise Christian compassion. A world that is willing to take the journey toward love, acceptance, and inclusion of everyone who has been wonderfully and beautifully made by God in our Christian society and the world. Although at times we live in tension, we celebrate diversity. Through respect, we learn to value and affirm all people inclusive of their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.
