The Possibility of Belonging

Each time we enter a new group, a new situation, a new community, we look for cues as to whether we are welcome, wanted, and safe. Welcoming words are a start, but we also notice the physical space, the visual messages, and the behavior of others in the community as we determine whether we, too, can truly belong. Last month, several congregants spoke about what helps them feel welcome and included, and what gets in the way. This Sunday, we will continue to explore how our congregation can work to become more accessible and inclusive over the coming year.
