Values

• We value the dignity of all people regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, creed, age, disability, ethnicity, or economic status.
• We celebrate the diversity of God’s creation, including a variety of cultural and ethnic expressions.
• We encourage our community to negotiate variant perspectives and values and to strive for open and respectful communication.
• We challenge systems and structures of ‘isms.’
• We seek to live into the healing and reconciling dream of God for all humanity.

One thought on “Values

  1. CDR: Thanks for working toward opening a sometimes closed community system. “Other” needs to be minimized in the community. There need to be friends — not strangers, participants — not members, three-dimensional depth — not flat perspective. With diversity, there is only opportunity — not threat.
