Welcome to this Place

A person, seen only from the waist up in the dark, holds a red neon heart in their hands.

Welcome to this place of peace;
May we find some moments of quiet contemplation.

Welcome to this place of celebration;
May our hearts soar with gratitude for the gift of life.

Welcome to this place of sacred love;
May we gently hold all that is broken here.

Welcome to this place of inquiry;
Here, may we be challenged to open our minds and hearts ever wider.

Come into this place of community;
May we, together, draw the circle of love and justice ever wider.

Welcome to this sacred place;
Come, let us worship, celebrate, grieve, and love together.
