Home is not a building or a place we meet.
Home is not just where we came from.
Home is more than people and memories.
Home is more than sentimentality or traditions.
Home is toys on the floor.
Home is a mess in the kitchen.
Home is a welcome at the door.
Home is a hug of acceptance.
Home is the laughter around the table, bread and cup.
Home is remembering promises made in water and spirit.
Home is seeing where God is leading us
And going there together.
Welcome home to High Street UMC
where we welcome children, care for each other, and learn how to love.
Where we are better together. Amen.
