Who We Are
Grace, like Evergreen, is a multi-cultural community.
We are from all parts of the world, speak various first and second languages, have roots in differing religions and share various and diverse cultures.
We all have a common interest in finding God who leads us to fullness of life.
It is said there are many ways to climb the mountain and find God.
This is most likely true. Paths are often crooked, take detours or hit many obstacles along the way. They don’t necessarily reach the mountaintop but offer the impression they are heading in the right direction. Some paths too, are shorter than others.
Those who claim no belief in God are camping on a level of the mountain or meandering within its valleys or by its streams.
We have all done this at some point in our lives. It can be ‘cool’, calm or distressful, also meaningless. Not a great place to be.
Just remember, all are welcome at Grace regardless of where you are on your spiritual path.
Jesus once said, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life.’ This should not be taken as a sign of arrogance or bragging. It is a message to all of us looking for a way, a better way, who are unsure of the path, lost in the journey, in despair, confused, wanting to get out of the morass.
Jesus surely is the way – if we take the way. It’s THE way, the shortest way when contrasted with the alternatives which present themselves as no way!
