At Riverside, we know that, despite our reputation for “speaking truth to power,” all our words and actions are empty if they are not based on the solid ground of faith. We gather in prayer, worship, and meditation to renew our commitment to living according to the promptings of the Spirit. We learn and grow in faith through Bible study and forums. We bring music from many traditions into our worship to revive our spirits. And then we take this spiritual energy back out to our homes, workplaces, towns, and to a nation in need of spiritual renewal. Much has been given us, and much is asked of us. We cannot waste our spiritual capital, but must ever seek to renew and deepen it.
