You Are Welcome Here

We come from many different paths to get here; wide is God’s welcome
And you are welcome here.

It doesn’t matter to us if you are poor or rich
You are welcome here

It doesn’t matter to us if you are weak or powerful
You are welcome here

It doesn’t matter to us if you are sick or healthy
You are welcome here

The color of your skin and your citizenship status does not matter to us
You are welcome here

It doesn’t matter to us if you are sad or happy
You are welcome here

It doesn’t matter to us if you are old or young
You are welcome here

It doesn’t matter to us if you are married, single, widowed, divorced, separated, remarried
You are welcome here

It doesn’t matter to us if you are gay, straight, lesbian, transgender, bisexual
You are welcome here

It doesn’t matter to us if you believe in God some of the time, all of the time, or if you are have a hard time believing n God right now
You are welcome here
