An Invitation to Community
As God has welcomed us, we welcome you.
With all our differences–
in age, ability and physical condition,
in race, cultural background and economic status,
in sexual orientation, gender identity & family structure–
God has received each one
with loving kindness, patience, and joy.
All that we are together
and all that we hope to be
is made more perfect
as the richness of varied lives
meets the mystery of God’s unifying Spirit
and we become the Body of Christ.
