Is this a place you would come if you did not already belong here? This question invites not only a “yes” or “no” response, but an additional question; Why?
Why do you attend the church you attend?
Why would someone else wish to attend?
Is your (or my) reason for attending the same as someone who does not currently attend?
If you didn’t attend this church, would you attend another?
If so, which one? Why?
I invite you to think deeply and move beyond the simple first response. Share the question with others and listen to their response.
See what you can learn.
