Lovely and inviting poetry. So many wonderful passages that show the heart of the church as it should be: joyful, and healing, and accepting.

What a warm and inviting poem. Speaks to the heart and offers hope - my kind of poem. :)
Written by a pastor's wife with a heart of compassion for everyone who is seeking fellowship, love and a sense of belonging. This poem should be lasered on the hearts of all Christians everywhere in offering Christian friendship to a very needy world. Beautiful, Linda!

Linda -- This is so "welcoming". Knowing you're a pastor's wife, I'd love to visit your fellowship.

When I got to this line, "Run now into the fellowship of those whoíve prayed you here!" I had to reread the stanza. We were "prayed" to our current fellowship of believers. After a move where we left family over a thousand miles away, the second week with our new Church family one couple told us they'd been praying for three years for someone to come help them.
