The lyrics to Welcome In This Place beautifully express our hope for our new community. Here’s the chorus:
Let’s talk together of a time when we will share a feast
where pride and power kneel to serve the lonely and the least
and joy will set the table as we join our hands to pray,
singing welcome, welcome to this place
you’re invited to come and know God’s grace,
all are welcome, the love of God to share
’cause all of us are welcome here,
all are welcome in this place.
(Words by Laurie Zelman and Mark Miller, 2007)
Think of some of the people you know who feel burned or bored by religion. Reflect on the lyrics from this song and consider how you might invite and welcome just one of the people you know to come and know God’s grace at The Table this Sunday through worship.
