Religion

The Covenant is the means of grace by which the relationship with God is accepted and then sustained. It is therefore not so much about getting in to a relationship with God as it is about staying in it.

Politics

When peaceful alternatives to resolve the conflict failed, the use of force may be the only option to check aggression or genocide.

Views

Every individual should try to be open to others and willing to be changed. Therefore, community members should meet regularly in order to open their hearts, share their knowledge, thoughts and experience.
