The Political Philosophy of Immigration

In most people do not want to have to raise their hand or be recognized in some way as a guest. In my own ministry I learned to carry note cards, so that when I met someone new, I could write down their names. It is amazing the number of churches that actually get contact information from their guests and simply send a form letter, or worse, make no effort to contact them at all.

A message gets sent one way or another.

Dan Smoot #434 - A Stranger In Their Midst (1963-Dec-09)

There are far more stories of welcome and warmth; just not enough. It is nice to have a greeter in the parking lot or at the door. It is good to have someone share a worship guide. It is wonderful when people scoot over to make room for others. It is special when church members introduce themselves to guests and, in so doing, exhibit the genuine warmth and friendliness of the congregation.

While this work of hospitality is part of the ministers calling; it is also truly the work of every member of the congregation. Not everyone who walks through the doors of a new church does so with an air of confidence. Some are unsure. Some are fearful.

For some it takes courage; and that is for those who have long been a part of the church culture. Can you imagine what it must be like for an unchurched seeker? It requires great intentionality. That means there has to be a plan to help your congregation be the friendly and welcoming church you want to be, and then we need healthy churches to execute that plan. With authenticity. On every Sunday. To every guest.
