You do not have to be braver, smarter, stronger, better than you are.

Our Opening Words Tell Who We Are

As we enter into worship, put away the pressures of the world that ask us to perform, to take up masks, to put on brave fronts. Silence the voices that ask you to be perfect.  This is a community of compassion and welcoming.  You do not have to do anything to earn the love contained within these walls.  You do not have to be braver, smarter, stronger, better than you are in this moment to belong here, with us.

You only have to bring the gift of your body, no matter how able; your seeking mind. no matter how busy; your heart, no matter how broken.  Bring all that you are, and all that you love, to this hour together.

~ Erika Hewitt.
