The word welcome is used four times in today’s Gospel reading . 
When we welcome in Jesus‘ name we welcome Jesus himself - the challenge is there.
We watch and listen to the unfolding of the Refugee crisis. 
Even though we have needs in our country we have a sense that we should reach out in compassion .
Next weekends basket collection will be put into a fund to help out first of all locally if a family of refugees  comes to live among us or if not towards 
helping out in the bigger picture of things. 
You can use your weekly envelope or there are some envelopes available at the door. Also Bishop Kevin has requested that if there are any vacant and available properties we might let him know. 
There are forms available at the door if you know of any such property.
