As a part of a Christian community we believe that we are the "body of Christ."
What we mean is that we all have gifts, talents, abilities
and that it takes all of us working together to realize God's vision for Ryerson.

1 Corinthians 12:12-13 (The Message)
You can easily enough  see how this kind of thing works by looking no further than your own body. Your body has many parts—limbs, organs, cells—but no matter how many parts you can name, you're still one body. It's exactly the same with Christ. By means of his one Spirit, we all said good-bye to our partial and piecemeal lives. 

We each used to independently call our own shots, but then we entered into a large and integrated life in which he has the final say in everything. (This is what we proclaimed in word and action when we were baptized.) Each of us is now a part of his resurrection body, refreshed and sustained at one fountain—his Spirit—where we all come to drink. The old labels we once used to identify ourselves—labels like Jew or Greek, slave or free—are no longer useful. We need something larger, more comprehensive.
Our vision at Ryerson is "we are a faith community passionately seeking to follow Jesus in our time." In order to fulfill our vision we need, people to come together (community) to bring their God given gifts/ talents/ abilities to serve, help and lead in the various 
ministries and programs and "other focused" initiatives.
