Our words are words we live by. The teachings of Jesus Christ implore us to exhibit selflessness in acts through love towards others. The strength of our community allows everyone to feel powerful and safe in their own skin. We find joy in our acceptance of everyone for in turn we become stronger in accepting ourselves, gaining critical insights and self-awareness of our power to make a positive difference in this world.

Self empowerment does not have to come at the expense of others. There has been a long history of humans ostracizing groups of people because of what they look like, their religious views, sexual orientations, levels of wealth; the list goes on. People should never be taught to hate themselves because of who they are, and we are constantly reaching out to bring these individuals into the fold, scraping away the crust of anger, defensiveness and hate that has attached to them. Shame on those that proliferate bigotry, racism, sexism, homophobia and xenophobia. Especially heinous are when these hateful ideas are given a voice in the name of religion, whose perpetrators are simply weak, insecure people trying to gain strength by putting others down. We, at the Berwyn Trinity Presbyterian Church, are not fooled by these posers and will always seek to show them the light. The words we speak are strong; words to live by.

The doors of our Church symbolize a frame within which you can visualize your life and how you include God in your life. Walking in the doors is as important as walking out for God's teachings are sincerely realized when turned into actions. Results of walking through these doors are seen in the caring, compassion, love and motivation of the people that make up our ministries.

The words we live by describe how we are our brothers' and sisters' keepers. Lifting people beyond the reach of despair is where we leverage our God given talents. And for those who unavoidably are engulfed in despair, we hold them so they do not drown.
