An epic is a poem. Our lives are like a poem and God is our composer. We are God’s masterpiece (Eph. 2:10) and we believe that He longs to narrate more and more of His love on the pages of our hearts.
An epic usually has a central hero. We recognize that we are far from perfect people and yet we have a hope that is found in following after the ways of our hero and rabbi, Jesus.
Finally an epic is something BIG. As we come to understand more of God’s love, we believe that God will transform our lives and our community to see people and circumstances through His eyes. As a result God will do big things in us and through us as we live out His love to the people of Mishawaka and throughout the world.
