Just a small correction:
The title is "AN INVITATION"...I have the entire quote, but would like to know the author.

Thanks

Here is the full text, which hopefully will help us to find the author.

In Invitation

You are a sojourner on tne way. We do not want to detain you nor turn you from your proper course. But now that you are passing by this post, warm yourself here for awhile ;sup with us, rest and gain strength for tomorrow's journey, and let us talk of our experiences on the path...It is always good to see the Way through different eyes.

We do not always talk around the campfire...Sometimes we sing and dance with joy; sometimes we listen observantly to the life about us; sometimes we gaze silently at distant horizons, and sometimes we sit motionless in quiet inner absorption.

There is shelter here. You are welcome to come and to go. We may not be here tomorrow...we are on the path ourselves, you know ! The dawn of a new day draws near. Let us with the first light of the morning sun remember who we are and the path to which we are called.
