"Welcome!"

   The prophet Isaiah reminds us that "those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength,

They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary,

they shall walk and not faint" (40:31).

Let us claim that wonderful promise as we present ourselves humbly before God.
