All Means All

Yesterday the Church Council met and approved the following statement welcoming everyone, which has been posted on the church’s website:

Aligning ourselves with the biblical witness, First United Methodist Church affirms Jesus’ example of inviting all people into God’s loving embrace. We believe that the diversity of our community enriches our journey together in faith. All people are welcome to join in our life together as we strive to live as a profoundly Christ-like church of open hearts, open mind, and open doors and work for the coming kingdom of God. And all means all.

Feel free to drop me a line a let me know what you’re thinking.
