The Weekly Wacky Welcome – August 17, 2014

It’s okay!

“What?”

It’s okay!

“Really?”

Yes, it’s okay!

“Wow!”

We are united in things that matter and diverse in everything else.  “Everything?”  Yes, everything. We celebrate the wonder of the sacred in our differences: age, race, gender, ability, orientation, politics, and theology!

“What about the placement of hands when we pray? I’ve noticed people having them at their sides, in their laps, holding hands with the person next to them, and some even hold them up in the air during prayer.” All of those are okay…even those you didn’t mention.

“What about saying, ‘Amen?’”

That’s okay, too. “Even clapping?” Yep. “What about making the sign of the cross or not?” Either is fine. Be you and connect with God in the best way possible for you. No one is denied at DHC into the full life and ministry of the church.

Shalom,

Paul
