You are welcome here, who ever you are! We practice " open hearts, open minds, open doors." You are welcome if you are single, married or divorced, LGBTQIA+ or straight, financially "comfortable" or struggling. We welcome those who are crying newborns and the parents/guardians who are doing the best to raise them.
You are welcome here if you're "just browsing," just woke up, or just got out of jail. We don't mind if you're wearing a tie or a t-shirt, skinny jeans or yoga pants, pumps or chucks. You are welcome with whatever faith background you have, from whatever tradition, or no tradition at all.
You are welcome here, no matter what your age... from our "golden oldies," to our adults who just "haven't grown up" quite yet, as well as to the teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome soccer moms and football-fanatic dads, starving artists and tree-huggers, coffee-guzzlers and tea-totalers, traditionalists and progressives, vegans and junk food aficionados.
You are welcome here whether you're in recovery, or are still addicted. We welcome you if you're having problems, or are down, or you don't like organized religion (some of us have been there, too!).
We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throat as a kid,
or are just here to please mom.
You are welcome here if you are inked, pierced, or both. We welcome the flexible, inflexible, tolerant, intolerant, those who laughed at, and those who gasped at this welcome. We hope that passersby, seekers, doubters, bleeding hearts... and you, will feel right at home here!
