The people of Soma Austin are not just in the Austin culture, but we are all deeply engaged in it as producers of culture, consumers of culture and shapers of culture. Like everyone else, there are some parts of culture that we accept as it is, other parts that we reject because it destroys life rather than restores life and other parts of our culture we seek to bring redemption and renewal to. As we grow, this section will grow with us as we learn more about those three areas. We will pay particular attention to the beautiful aspects of our culture and to the areas where we can bring new life into. In renewing people and communities, we will continue to work for the common good of all people.
