Wherever you are on your journey of faith, you are welcome here!


Long ago, Santa gave me a 250 piece jigsaw puzzle. I put it together on Christmas Day and found there were pieces missing. My mother allowed that we could return Santa’s gift at the local five-and-dime. The next day we went. There was a line. A sign said: “Your money cheerfully returned if not delighted!” This seemed too easy. What would happen if someone tried to get their money back when there was nothing wrong with their gift?” My mother said, “The storekeeper will say, ‘I was delighted with your money and I will not return a dime!’”
