Mission and Vision
Charis – what is in the name????
Latin – ‘Gratia‘
Greek – ‘Charis’
- ‘That which brings approval, delight and joy.’´
- ‘Unmerited favour; a gift freely and undeservingly given.’
- ‘To be thankful, grateful.’
“The word for thanks is charis. To have charis is to be thankful; to give charis is to give thanks.
Charis is both the delight in receiving a gift, and the thanks one offers for it.”
