One generation shall commend your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts;
on the glorious splendor of your majesty.
They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
One of the great gifts a community of believers can give its students is the gift of remembering and retelling. Our shared faith is one to be transferred — in our songs, in our celebrations, and in our stories.
Christianity in New York can be a complex reality to practice in a religiously diverse, intellectually rigorous, economically broken city. The implications of our practice are worth observing and scrutinizing, within ourselves and with our students.
And yet we do not have to hesitate expressing what the gospel of Jesus Christ has meant for us. It is every generation’s open door to lasting joy, peace, confidence, and resilience. We do not forget his benefits because our lives are the gospel’s proof of concept.
Our spaces are designed to thoughtfully explore how spiritual transformation is pruned through times of trial and rejoicing. We gather to build our faith, grow as a family, spark our curiosity, accept sadness and disappointments, and inspire our hope for so much ahead to discover together.
