We Welcome You

We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, y aquellos que no hablan Ingles.

We extend a special welcome to those who are crying newborns, skinny as a rail, or could afford to lose a few pounds.

We welcome you if you can sing like Andrea Bocelli, or like our pastors, who can't carry a note in a bucket.

You're welcome here if you're "just browsing," just woke up, or just got out of jail.  We don't care if you're more Catholic than the Pope or haven't been in church since little Joey's baptism.

We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast.  We welcome soccer moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, paleoistas, vegetarians, and junk-food eaters. 

We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted.  We welcome you if you're having problems or you're down in the dumps or if you don't like "organized religion;" we've been there, too.

If you blew all your offering money at the dirt track, you're welcome here.

We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don't work, can't spell, or came because grandma is in town and wanted to go to church.

We welcome those who are inked, pierced, or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down your throat as a kid, or got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake.

We welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, bleeding hearts...and you!

Oh wonderful it is to see so many of my old friends! So many  wonderful memories come rushing back to me as I read the Advocator for  the first time in 17 years. The newsletter has come a long way from my  copy, cut with scissors, and glue pieces of paper together to make it in  the 90s! 😂 My 9 years working at Advent were some of my life's best  years and I miss you all still. You were my family and I loved you then  and love you still. Much love to you all! 😘
