Return Again (09-09-18 Sermon)

What words could signal “home, ” not only to all of us, but to every visitor, every wedding guest and mourner, and each member of our staff, and the UPS delivery person, Brian the furnace guy, and every solitary seeker who sits down in a pew, every queer or trans or gay person young or old who bravely, quietly slips in and wonders all through the hour if the spoken welcome will be lived in practice when the service stops and coffee time begins?
