Want Ad

Part 1 of this series can be found here.

 

Want Ad

Wanted- a church that says it is welcoming

And actually is

 

Wanted- a church not color blind

But kaleidoscope embracing

 

Wanted- a church that is humbly proud of itself

And has reason to be

 

Wanted- a church not elitist

But makes space for every income & education

 

Wanted- a church that takes in the community as brothers and sisters

And not a colony to be conquered

 

Wanted- a church more interested in being kind than right

 

Wanted- a church with love to show

Not something to prove

 

Wanted-a church not worshipping patriarchal idols

But welcoming all as equals

 

Wanted- a church affirming

Not just tolerating

 

Wanted- a church that absorbs confusion

Offering gentle guidance and ready ear

 

Wanted- a church not exclusive

But radically inclusive

 

Needed- a church as welcoming as Jesus was, and is, and ever will be

Amen.
