SCRIPTURE HAS THE BEST IDEAS—IF PEOPLE WOULD READ OR LISTEN!!!!!
Practice hospitality. (And that means more than serving awesome fried chicken)
As a pastor I get so many “life-changing” ideas come across my desk in pamphlet form. They promise us church growth and then give us a few steps to implement hospitality. Tips like making sure that the word of life doesn’t come with the breath of death—in other words tell your greeters to try some breath mints.
Now don’t get me wrong. Some of these articles and pamphlets can been really helpful. (I’ve maybe even written a few). And I really do believe that healthy churches are also hospitable churches. But when I read these articles something in my stomach starts to churn.
What’s the Problem?
