Today, my family and I were formally welcomed as members of our church.
We had decided to get off our duffs and find a church on the encouragement of the children I am guardian to. We went to a number of different churches around the city before going to one we had passed many times, but somehow never visited.
The first service we attended, I immediately felt like I had come home.
We were among a group of new members formally welcomed, and we were each given these beautiful crosses as gifts, made of wood reclaimed from part of the church.
We now literally have a part of the church in our home.
It seems so very appropriate.
