Litany of Welcoming

We were so inspired by the Litany of Welcome from the Georgian Mountains Unitarian Universalist Church, which we saw on a webinar called “Small Numbers, Infinite Possibilities”, that we now open every Sunday Service this way. We want to make it known that all are welcome here, and we specifically want to give a welcome to segments of the community who have traditionally been overlooked, rejected and oppressed. As long as you come in peace, we welcome you.

If you are here for the first time, or the one millionth time,
     you are welcome here.

If you believe in one God, many Gods or Goddesses, no Gods or if you are open to the mystery,
     you are welcome here

If you are gay, straight, bi-sexual, transgender, non-binary or done with labels altogether,
     you are welcome here

If you are covered in tattoos or are a blank canvas,
     you are welcome here

If you are big, small, tall, short, young, old, rich or poor,
     you are welcome here

Whatever the color of your skin, your heritage or cultural background or immigration status,
     you are welcome here

If you are outgoing or an introvert,
     you are welcome here

If you come here sober, addicted, or somewhere in between,
     you are welcome here

If you are deep in grief, or if you are celebrating,
     you are welcome here

If you join us every week, or if you join us once every 50 years,
     you are welcome here

Your whole self, all that you were, all that you are and all that you dream to be
you are right where you should be, right now in a room full of compassionate, thoughtful, justice seeking, radically welcoming, Unitarian Universalists
ready to meet you where you are and walk with you on your personal journey.

We, the New River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, welcome you home.
