Welcome Words by Rev. Stefanie Etzbach-Dale, 05/05/13 Uuofscv
Seekers of truth, of each time and each place,
Champions of doubt, and reason’s embrace,
Be welcome, be greeted, with honor and glee,
With or without, a college degree!
For wisdom is found in the curious mind,
In the heart opened up to thoughts redefined;
Queries and insights, shared here, among friends,
Reveal much more, than a crystalline lens!
A goal we all share, is to find what is true,
To develop a relevant, helpful, worldview;
To bring about peace in a world full of woe,
Calling to question the old status quo.
So all that you bring, and all that you are,
Serves in this place, as a bright morning star!
A gift to all seekers, determined to know,
Which “facts” to revere, and which to let go!
