“I decided to make Broad Street my home upon befriending two very special people: our patron saint, Mr. Elbert, and a personal saint of mine, one gentle soul who invited me to sit with her every Sunday during worship. They were the first to welcome me into this community, though they wouldn’t be the last.
I keep coming back to Broad Street because I’m loved and accepted here. Some days I still have trouble wrapping my mind around it. Honestly, I have enjoyed so much privilege in my life that it wouldn’t surprise me if most of our guests wanted nothing to do with me. But by grace this community has embraced me, and I can no longer envision a future without Broad Street. I’ve found my people. I wish everyone had what I have here.”
