"Come, come, whoever you are.  Wonderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.  It doesn’t matter.  Ours is not a caravan of despair.  Come, even if you have broken your vow a thousand times.  Come, yet again, come, come."  —Jalal ad-Din Rumi

We welcome all persons to share in our life togetherOur welcome knows no boundaries of race, ethnicity, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic condition, or physical or mental ability.  We welcome Roman Catholics (and lapsed Catholics), Evangelicals (and those angered by evangelicalism), Mainline Protestants (and those bored by the Mainline), folks who've never stepped inside a church, folks who've spent too much time in church, agnostics, atheists, and those who are just curious whether religion has anything worthwhile left to say or do.  In building our community of love and justice, we seek to always uphold the beautiful diversity of God’s creation.
