Touchstone: Welcome

Meeting Others

The Touchstone of Welcome is experienced in the daily process of meeting each other, and the strangers and visitors at our own doorway. It’s about embracing each other and them with a spirit of openness and warmth, and ensuring that for however long this visit takes, each person is treated as a friend.

The Cycle

We might be tempted to think of Welcoming only as something we do at the beginning of a relationship, or for visitors. On the contrary, it is its own endlessly renewing cycle of opening the arms of the community to each other.

Later when we discuss the importance of food and eating together, it will be obvious how much of a role that plays in creating feelings of Welcome.
