As a sacramental community, we take very seriously our Lord’s example – God’s love is not meant just for some, it is for everyone. During Jesus’ earthly ministry, he welcomed all, including those who were excluded, who didn’t “fit in,” and who others turned their back on. We are called to do the same and to look beyond exclusion to inclusion and to welcome all. Messiah works toward this goal. It does not matter your background, including your faith background, all are welcome.
