Welcoming Communities of Faith

You might not know it from the headlines, but our state is full of welcoming communities of faith! They embrace people for who they are.  They don’t single out specific characteristics for exclusion or censure.  They don’t treat some people as less worthy than others.  They want only to share and celebrate their joy in a higher spirit.
