“My son had been asking questions about Christianity, but then he had a verbal altercation with a neighbor who goes to church every Sunday.”
“I was thinking about visiting _______ church, but somebody came into my business acting like a jerk, and they were wearing a T-shirt from there.”
“I’m a security guard and work details for churches. I see how they act toward us when they’re leaving, so I’d never go to church.”
“When I was 14 I went to church, but got called into the pastors office and yelled at for shooting spitballs, so I never went back.” (Now he’s 30 with a criminal and painful past).
Really wanting the church to think through our attitudes and actions outside and toward those on the outside of the church building. I’ve read the fastest growing religious affiliation is the unaffiliated. My desire is to not be a stumbling block for those who need to see the beauty of Christ.
