We don’t do lip service when we talk about relationship. We mean what we say. We are relationship builders! Encounter is at the heart of what we do. We are missionaries of encounter. We want to give opportunities for encounter, a life-changing encounter with Lord and a nourishing encounter with one another. In encounter we build relationship.
We are to build a culture of encounter not a culture of avoidance. The result of a culture of avoidance is unhealthy individualism that causes loneliness and despair. We don’t need to look far, we have seen it in our neighbourhood the effects of too much individualism. We cannot live alone for we cannot deny that we are social creature. We find joy, fulfillment and meaning in life when we build relationship with one another.
