God bless you, friends.
We welcome you,
And greet you in the Lord’s name.
Our Father’s house belongs to you.
You are the reason Jesus came.
So may the Spirit gladden you
And guide you with his holy Flame.
We pray to share our lives with you,
For you and we are loved the same.

Dennis Evans, c. 1993


  1. Oh, I love this! And I just see the painting that could go beside this... a bright orange/red flame and you would see Jesus behind it somehow.(And lots of faces alongside the flame as well). Hey, I am not an artist, but I can just picture it. This would be perfect at a front of a church.
