All Are Welcome Here

Today’s Gospel from Matthew 22:1-10 can be headed ‘Invite everyone you can to the wedding’.


Jesus uses the image of a wedding feast to describe the ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ and because some people were making excuses for not wanting to come to the wedding the king in the story opens up the invitation to everyone.


God’s hospitality and welcome is open to all even those who think they are not worthy or deserving. I was reminded again of my song ‘All Are Welcome Here' from ‘Truly Blessed’.


You may like to listen to the song and follow the lyrics.

Imagine Christ extending his hands towards you in welcome and mercy.


All are welcome here

All are welcome here

Christ invites us as we are. All are welcome here.


Our weakness and our pain

Our sorrows and our shame

Christ invites us each by name

All are welcome here


In this place there is no room for judgement

In this place there is no room to condemn

We are all on this journey together

Welcome in, Welcome in


Our troubles and our cares

Our failings through the years

Christ desires to calm our fears

All are welcome here

Despite what some may say

Despite what some may do


Christ is standing at the door

And his welcome is true


In this place there is no room for judgement


All are welcome here…..
