All Means All
Is everyone welcome?
It's commonplace for churches to say, "Everyone is welcome here." What does that mean, practically, though? Sure, everyone is welcome to enter the building, right? But once they get inside and decide they'd like to call that particular church community their home, just how welcome are they?
What if they're a non-believer or a follower of a different faith? What if they're not heterosexual? What if they have very strong opinions about things that are different from that of the majority of the people in the congregation? Are they welcome, too?
