It is our aspiration, imperfectly embodied, and it is not easy. We stumble all the time. We scrape our knees, wound our pride, wound each other, drop our guard, start over. We forgive ourselves and each other; we begin again, and yet again, in love. “All are welcome, ” all are saved, is a wild, heretical theology, and we practice and practice this religion, trying to get it right.
-Rev. Victoria Safford, “Gathered Here”
