Very Wordy Wednesday: Welcome
Whenever the church is open, we place a sign on the sidewalk outside this door that says "come in, say a prayer, light a candle." And people do.
Sometimes I come into the church to get something or maybe to sit and say a prayer myself, and occasionally there's someone sitting there alone, praying. I don't always know who the person is. But it means a lot to us that we offer a quiet and beautiful space in this otherwise kind of chaotic, crazy world we live in, a place for people to come and sit and be quiet in the presence of God or beauty or stillness or whatever they are looking for.
To all we say, Welcome.
