I have just returned from the United Reformed Church General Assembly in Southport.We heard lots of Speakers and reflected on many issues. I engaged in a lively discussion on welcome within our churches, and many churches would readily see themselves as ‘welcoming’, however when push comes to shove, how welcoming would they really be?

We discussed Jesus model of welcome in relation to LGBTQ and people who live with learning disabilities, difficulties and mental health issues.

God’s Kingdom is not a monochrome colour, it is vibrant, colourful and passionate.There is always room for one more, to bring another hue to the rainbow coloured Kingdom of God.

There is always room for one more, to show us how wide and deep God’s love is for the world we live in.

There is always room for one more, to find another disciple to walk with.

There is always room for one more, to broaden our understanding of God.

There is always room for one more, to pray with.

There is always room for one more, to welcome on the path of friendship.

There is always room for one more, to show us the creativity of the Holy Spirit.

There is always room for one more, to share a smile with.

There is always room for one more, to bless and for them to bless us.

There is always room for one more …..

There is always room for one more……..

We are the poorer……  if we say no room…...
