"Speak at all times as if God were listening to everything you say."
- Martin Buber, Jewish Philosopher
In the Torah, Abraham and Sarah are the consummate practitioners of sacred hospitality. WRT’s Friday night Shabbat and festival Greeters are our modern day Abrahams and Sarahs, welcoming the community as we open our tent to those who seek renewal and our sacred space. Each Greeter is vital to the integrity and flow of services as well as to the general atmosphere and tone of the WRT worship experience.
The clergy and congregants rely on the Greeters to help create a warm, welcoming environment for both fellow members and visitors from helping worshippers to find seats, to supporting those who require assistive listening devices and large print prayer books, to handing latecomers a prayer book opened to the correct page. Greeters also assist in sustaining the dignity of the worship by maintaining order and quiet and by dealing with issues as they arise. Most importantly, they connect people to each other and to WRT.
