A Modern Day Parable

This video is sharp – cutting right to the heart of the way that many churches operate.  From the bumper stickers to the “greeters” who are otherwise engaged in conversation, it’s no wonder that when a church does manage to get a visitor to come, they don’t stay!  Thanks Deb for sharing.

Interact: What part of this video is most true of your church?

  1. Possibly the biggest thing keeping me out of church is the unnaturally extreme (and insincere) friendliness. Couldn’t they at least ask people if they want to be left alone?

  2. I’m not sure that the friendliness is insincere, but at times it does seem over the top and extreme. Davis, can you tell me about the type of church you would be interested in visiting? How can a church be friendly and welcoming without being overbearing? I’d love your perspective on this.
