A col­or­ful com­mu­nity awak­ens on a sunny Sun­day morn­ing. Each fam­ily is a beau­ti­fully unique blend of styles, tra­di­tions, and eth­nic­i­ties, and they unite peace­fully in a church for all, where ev­ery age, race, and gen­der and sex­ual iden­tity is wel­come. Play­ful rhyming verses ac­com­pa­nied by de­light­fully cap­ti­vat­ing il­lus­tra­tions fo­cus on the lively and di­verse con­gre­ga­tion as it gath­ers to­gether. In­spired by in­clu­sive churches, the sense of joy­ful, spir­i­tual com­mu­nion sends a pow­er­ful mes­sage of love and ac­cep­tance.
