On behalf of the entire congregation, I bid you welcome to the Unitarian Universalists of the Blue Ridge.
We gather with our doubts as well as our convictions, with our fears and our hopes, with our failures and our aspirations, with our sorrows and our joys.
Whether you are joining us today for the first time, or you’ve been with us since this congregation’s beginnings in 2008, you are welcome here.
Whatever the faiths you have now – if any – or whatever your heritage, you are welcome here.
Whoever you are and whomever you love, you are welcome here.
However you arrived at this beloved place, you are welcome here.
