We extend a special welcome to you. We welcome those who are single, in a relationship, engaged, married, divorced, filthy rich, dirt poor. You’re welcome here if you’re “church shopping”, just woke up or just got out of jail. It doesn’t matter to us if you’re more spiritual than Billy Graham, or haven’t been in church since Christmas, when you were ten.
We especially welcome those who are over 50 but not grown up yet, and teenagers who are growing up to fast. We welcome ardent Aggies, lifelong Longhorns, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters and those who are strictly carnivores. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or are down in the dumps or so excited you could burst.
We welcome you if you feel you don’t have your act together enough for God to love you, or are second guessing being here because you think everyone in a church must surely have their act together and your biggest fear is that your being here will cause lightning to strike. We welcome you if you take a huge risk to come or if you feel that missing church must make God cringe.
If you blew all your offering money on Lotto tickets, you’re welcome here. If you think the moon landing was staged, you work to hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are coming because gammy is in town and she wants you to go to church with her, you’re welcome!
