O Welcoming Host, Come
Romans 15:7 Welcome one another, therefore, as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
O Welcoming Host, Come~
Open the doors of our hearts
to receive strangers in peace,
be they person, idea, or belief.
May we invite in that which
brings us discomfort,
or jars us from our certitude.
Open our eyes and minds,
open our homes, our churches
to recognize your presence in all.
Open us to embrace the holiness in all,
which is deeper than the differences,
as we seek to be gracious, welcoming hosts.
