Back to School Picnic
August 25 12:00 pm
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich or dirt poor. And to those who are crying newborns, skinny as a rail, or who could afford to lose a few points. We welcome you if you can sing like Beyonce or you can't carry a note in a bucket. You're welcome here if you're more Catholic than the Pope, or haven't been to church since little Joey's Baptism. We extend a special welcome to those 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, latte-sippers, vegetarians, and junk-food eaters. We offer a special welcome to those who think the world is flat, work too hard, don't work, can't spell, or because Grandma is in town and she wanted to go to church today. We welcome those who are inked, pierced, or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid, or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake. We welcome tourists, seeks and doubters, bleeding hearts... and YOU!
"If it's not about love, it's not about God." Presiding Bishop Michael Curry
