How do you welcome people in a time of pandemic? Our reading for Sunday Explorers was from Matthew 10:40-42:

“Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet as a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and whoever welcomes a righteous person as a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward. And if anyone gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones who is my disciple, truly I tell you, that person will certainly not lose their reward.”

We thought about all the different ways that we might be able to welcome people, even when we can’t shake hands, hug or let them into our houses. Then we made ‘welcome’ signs to hang in our houses as a reminder. Here is the one that Florence made.
