The art exhibition, “Strong Women of the Bible,” was removed on Friday afternoon because of the artists’ concerns for security in a church building with regular activities but in particular, Project Home’s presence in our building. Despite no history of theft or damage since the Gallery opened in 2005, she was concerned that her work could not be secured. Gloria Dei reiterates its welcome to all our guests in Project Home. We proudly open our doors to provide hospitality and warm shelter for families during this holy season. We do not consider the presence of these families to be a problem or a threat but a beautiful sign of our mission to care, to heal, and to do justice. As we sing: God welcomes all, strangers and friends. God’s love is strong and it never ends.
