God bless America and all those who dwell within it
The Fourth of July is just a few days away and the occasion offers the opportunity to celebrate all that is good in these United States of America. How best can we do so? Perhaps we cannot do better than recalling some of the words engraved on the iconic Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor.
"Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
What a gracious “Welcome” to the many who have entered this country via the harbor of New York City.
The theme “Welcome” is central to the gospel reading this week. We, as followers of the way of Jesus are invited, encouraged and challenged to be welcoming. To welcome in the name of the Lord all who come with goodwill is rewarding, as we in this church know. Even a cup of water given to one who needs it, is blessed.
Join us for worship on Sunday, if you can, and welcome!
