***WOKE*** Conservatives have taken over the expression "woke" popularized by African-American young men.  African-Americans used the word to mean staying awake and alert, to have been "woke" up and paying attention to the cultural and religious movements of the past, present, and potential futures.  The Ray Of Hope Church Statement of Purpose calls us to stay "woke" at all times, paying attention to the world of religion, politics, and society.

We did not start a new kind of Christianity.  Ray Of Hope Church teaches the same Christian faith of ancient ecumenical consensus.  St. Vincent of Lerins, a fifth-century monk and theologian, described it as "what has been believed always, everywhere, and by all."
