We are flawed.
We don’t pretend that our lives are perfect or that we have everything figured out. We struggle with temptation, with sickness, with anger, with addictions, and with everything else that goes with being human. So if you’re coming for a visit, relax, we know you aren’t perfect either.
We are wildly diverse.
At East Hill we all over the board economically, educationally, and politically. Some of us grew up in the city, some in the country. Some came from stable family backgrounds, some from rough backgrounds. You might think that a diverse group of people like us don’t have much in common. But we do have one thing…
We are God's children.
The grace of God covers over our flaws and the love of Jesus transcends our diversity. We try to pass that grace and love along. The apostle John once wrote, “Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” That is what binds us together. We serve a perfect God and look forward to a perfect kingdom in heaven. Until then, we are doing what we can to practice those things on earth.
