Everybody Welcome

on May 25, 2012

“Whether young or old, straight or gay, female or male, homeless or housed, you are welcome here. Whatever the color of your skin or your cultural heritage, you are welcome here. Whether you have never been in church before today, or if you attend church regularly as a matter of course, you are welcome here. You are welcome here because Christ welcomes you and, therefore, so do we.”

Parish bulletin, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 1020 North Brand Boulevard, Glendale, California.

Now, isn’t this exactly what Jesus Christ would have said?

    I believe it. I believe that those who cannot or do not welcome all, surely don’t know Christ as well as they believe. But that is just my opinion.
