  1. Hi. I just read this, as well as your piece on not being a welcoming church. Actively inviting instead of making sure everyone is welcome is a tiny, nearly imperceptible difference. You’re still doing the same thing: trying to people to come into your building and do what you do.

    Why not be like Jesus, and go out to where the people are, and get involved in what they’re doing? You know what Jesus is never recorded as doing? Asking people to come worship with him. Instead, he spent his time loving God and loving others, and people followed him around like crazy.

    Quit trying to make people be like you, and worship in your building, and you’ll have a lot more success at “outreach.” Get out of the building — not just to work at the food pantry or wherever, but for real.
