We started One Way Love to live a life of compassion, to see the connection between ourselves and those who are hurting and suffering. It’s not a burden; it’s a fire within us to make a difference.
The fruit of love is service, which is compassion in action.
One Way Love provides community and family support, counseling, housing assistance, and other forms of services firmly rooted in the sincere belief that there is no person created whom is unloved, unaccepted, or unwelcome by God. As such, the organization does not exclude any person or persons on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, political affiliation, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, genetic information, age, parental status, or military service.
"What the gospel indeed gives us is a cosmic and positive vision inside of which the soul can live safely. That’s the only place from which lasting change ever comes. Jesus’ word for that positive vision- not against anybody or expelling anything- is the Reign of God. He includes (“forgives”) sinners instead of excluding or scapegoating them. The suffering of Jesus tells us that God is not aloof or merely tolerating human pain, but participating with us in it. It’s the only thing that gives us both hope and meaning."
