We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, filthy rich, or dirt poor. We extend a special welcome to those who have crying newborns, skinny as a rail or could afford to lose a few pounds.
We welcome you if you can sing like Michael Jackson or like our pastor who can't carry a note in a bucket. You're welcome here if you're "just browsing", "just woke up" or "just got out of jail". We don't care if you are more Catholic than the Pope or you haven't been in church since little David's dedication.
We extend a special welcome to those who buy their clothes at
Wal-Mart, who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, vegetarians and junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you're having problems or you're down in the dumps. If you blew all your offering money at the dog track, you're welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, who work too hard, who don't work, who can't spell or because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.
We welcome long hairs, no hairs and those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those with special needs, those who could use a prayer right now, those who got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts... and YOU!
