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 the stranger-
the person, the idea, the belief
that brings us discomfort,
that jars us from our certitude.
Open our hearts and minds,
our churches and our neighborhoods
to see your presence,
which we all share,
and which is deeper than our differences.
Remind us that as we welcome others
we welcome Christ.
