    Yours is the first of Christ’s faces to greet God’s people as they assemble for prayer.

    Your greeting of welcome is the first wish that “The Lord be with YOU!”

    Yours is the word that welcomes the stranger to be at home, or the silence that makes of our assembly a foreign land.

    Yours is the task of discretion: knowing how to welcome, and when and where to seat the latecomer.

    Yours may be the last word that ushers the community to its week of work in the Lord’s vineyard.

    Yours is the Lord’s face and voice
