All are welcome! Our sending hymn this coming Sunday as we think about Jesus’s mission statement as we continue our Lenten journey

It’s a hymn of welcome with a fun text, sing-songy tune, and quite solid refrain.

The refrain really sticks with you. It’s a simple but strong text matched to a really spiffy tune.

The theological claims of the last verse appeal to many, in that our story is “claimed as words within the Word.” This names our connection to Christ well, and reminds us to fully value human experience.
