Shortly They Will Arrive

Tonight, we invite those that are new to our church to come over to our house, eat our food, drink our beverages and crowd our home. It is one of my favorite events at church. It’s a chance for the newbies to get to know us a bit better and to feel welcome in our home. I am sure there will be a day when we can’t do this anymore simply because of the vast number of people that will be new each month. But we can do it now and we want to do it.

It’s a pretty big privilege to show people the love of Christ in this most simple and practical way. I have said it before and I will say it again – Jesus fed people, he ate with people and He was available. And it really is the least we can do as pastors to model this kind of hospitality.
