All Are Welcome by Raymond A. Foss

Driving to the courthouse
a word of hope, of offering
“all are welcome”, the sign read
How wonderful this affirmation
this statement of faith
proclaimed to all who would pass by
How important for all of us
all people of faith
to aspire, to strive, to work
to make this pledge true,
in our own churches
to see that all are welcome
that no one is turned away
finding the door closed
All must know,
from the instant they arrive
that they are welcome in the house of God
We merely the glove,
holding out the hand of God
in welcome, to all
