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~
Widen 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, churches and communities
to recognize your presence in all.
Enable us to embrace the holiness
at the core of each person,
which is deeper than the differences,
as we seek to be peace-filled, welcoming hosts.
