People who follow Jesus,
Here are your instructions:
for your journeyand trust in me that you will Give Something.
Wear Simple Sandals
and not the latest and greatest fashion.
Carry with you only what you need for a day.
While the journey will be long, you need to depend on me.
If any place does not welcome you, Don’t Worry about it.
Shake it off.
There are places you need to welcome.
Hospitality is what I am sending you to show.

Lord, We come as Dead Trees.
We bare no fruit. We have no ability to create life apart from you.
Lord, We come as Strangers in a Strange Land.
Not one of us is originally from here.
Our ancestors came chasing herds, by accident, in hope,
by oppression, and in chains.
But Lord, We are here.
Plant us firmly in your rich soil. Help us sprout goodness and mercy!
Lord, We are here.
Let us open the doors to the House of the Lord and Welcome All!
