Opening Words

We bid you welcome, who come with weary spirit seeking rest.

Who come with troubles that are too much with you; who come hurt and afraid.

We bid you welcome, who come with hope in your heart.

Who come with anticipation in your step; who come proud and joyous.

We bid you welcome, who are seekers of a new faith.

Who come to probe and explore; who come to learn.

We bid you welcome, who enter this hall as a homecoming.

Who have found here room for your spirit; who find in this people a family.

Whoever you are, whatever you are, where ever you are on your journey.

We bid you welcome.
