Growing up is the move from passion to compassion.

Whether the community is gathered or scattered, the mandate to be Christ's witnesses defines every dimension of the community's life. This is what is meant by incarnational witness: demonstrating concretely the reality of God's love in the ways the community functions.

The relationships among the members of the community are intended to incarnate the powerful and transforming love of the gospel. The compassion with which the community cares for its own as well as for its neighbours incarnates the gospel.

The dependence of God's forgiveness is incarnated in the way that the community forgives, practices tolerance, bears one another's burdens.
