Christians are called to radical welcome. Let’s ask of ourselves this question: How welcoming is our church family?
Perhaps we could ask this question in these three ways:
Is out church a place where new people come and experience community?
How long does a person have to belong to our church before they experience community?
How effective are we at including those who are a part of our church but feel on the outside?
You might like to consider prayerfully your own role in making our church community a place of radical welcome. We will be discussing this question on Sunday. You might like to read the passage in preparation for our service: Deuteronomy 16:1-17.
