You Are Welcome

Each of our services begins with these words, and we mean them.  You are welcome here!

Good morning.

On behalf of the entire congregation, I bid you welcome to our worship service here with the Unitarian Universalists of the Blue Ridge.

We gather in this sanctuary

with our doubts as well as our convictions,

with our fears and our hopes,

with our failures and our aspirations,

with our sorrows and our joys.

Whether you are joining us today for the first time, or you’ve been a member since this congregation’s founding in 2009, you are welcome here.  Whatever the faiths you have known – if any – or whatever your heritage, you are welcome here.  Whoever you are and whomever you love, you are welcome here.  However you arrived at this beloved place, you are welcome here.

We hope to welcome you soon.

 The Unitarian Universalists of the Blue Ridge
