The signs in front of our church say “The Episcopal Church Welcomes You.”
We like to point out that there is no asterisk after the word “you,” as if there are people to whom our welcome does not apply.
Because no matter who you are, or where you are in your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
Our congregation is made up of rich and poor, young and old, gay and straight, single and married, divorced and widowed.
And so we are diverse. Come worship with us and get to know us, and you’ll find that we are diverse in age, in our demographics, in our ethnicities, in spiritual maturity levels, and in political viewpoints. We don’t just “tolerate” that diversity: we actively encourage it.
But we are also unified. Our unity is found not in like-appearances or in like-mindedness, but in the God who created us, loves us, and calls us to “love God and our neighbors as ourselves” in return. Our unity comes from what St. Paul named in Ephesians 4 and what the Book of Common Prayer reminds us of each time there’s a baptism: “One Body and one Spirit; one hope in God's call to us; one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism; one God and Father of all.”
