Welcome!   As a noun, the word has many meanings.   But as a verb its manifestations are countless.   God is the originator of welcome.   In the beginning of biblical time, God welcomed us into creation and into existence.   We experienced the same love and welcome in Jesus Christ.   This welcome is  not only to make us wanted and accepted, but it is also an invitation to share in God's work.   God's welcome motivates us and compels us to extend the same welcome to others.   We are transformed as we express welcome.

2018 Theme: 

Sacred Spaces: Encounters With God and Neighbor

Sacred spaces are not only places of religious significance but sacred because of the interactions that thake place between God and humans there. When we interact with God, we learn something about ourselves and we discover God's purposes for our lives. So, too, our encounters with people become sacred when we consider that humans bear God's image and are recipients of God's love and grace.
