A Spiritual Community, In the Christian Tradition, Where Everyone is Welcome
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, or no habla ingles. We extend a special welcome to those who are crying new-borns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.
We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli or if you're like our pastor who can't carry a note in a bucket. You're welcome here if you're just browsing, just woke up or just got out of jail. We don't care if you're more Methodist than John Wesley, or haven't been in church since little Joey's baptism.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, Beaver/Duck dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you're having problems or you're down in the dumps or if you don't like organized religion. We've been there too.
If you blew all your offering money on Powerball tickets, you're welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don't work, can't spell, or just came because grandma's in town and wanted to go to church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid, or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts and you!
