Come Into This Place

A small bird's nest is held in a human hand (black and white photo)

Come into this place with your whole self – the parts that are raw and exposed;
the part that is beaming with joy;
the part that is seeking the truth, the new, the possibility.
Come into this place – open your heart, lay down your burden, lift up your hope – for something new to happen.
Come into this place, with fellow travelers on the journey –
some faces new
and others familiar
and all welcoming you here – now, to this moment.
Come, let us worship together.
