There is a place for you here.
I wish I could take credit for those words, but I can’t. They are adapted from one of my (current) favorite songs, “A Place for Us” by Fitz and the Tantrums.
The lyrics go like this:
“Cause were marching to the beat out in the open air
And were all just working pieces trying to fit somewhere.
As long as we’re together we can go anywhere,
Yeah, there is a place for us.”*
As a stand- alone song its lovely. But every time I hear it, I can’t help but think that in some ways it sums up the life of this congregation: we are a group of working pieces, held together by our faith in Jesus Christ, that gather weekly to remember we have a place to remember that we are loved by one another and by God.
But it doesn’t stop there for Pilgrim. We gather together but then we are sent out in our various ministry teams and organizations to live in the world as disciples of Christ. As you peruse the remaining portions of the website, I hope that you begin to see that life at Pilgrim isn’t all just about the warm fuzzies of worship and knowing we are loved (don’t get me wrong that is important) but it extends beyond this place out into the world. We serve our local, wider, national and global communities in a variety of ways through our mission, inclusion, and educational activities in the name of Christ. Because we believe that there is a place for you (whoever you are and wherever you are on life’s journey) in this congregation, but also in the family of God.
We do our best to extend that welcome not just in this place but to our communities and surrounding areas, while reminding the people we encounter that the grace of Christ and love of God are never out of reach.
To you, dear reader, know that there is a place for you here among other working pieces trying to fit in this world and believe we are held together by the miraculous and amazing grace of Jesus Christ.
Your sister in Christ,
*Karnes, Joseph Scott, Fitz and the Tantrums, “A Place for Us” Handclap (Elektra Records, 2016)
