There is a church in our area that identifies itself and its members with signs posted on their lawns that read, “I love my church!”
When we were out this weekend doing what every good mother of five does on Saturday mornings, garage-saling, I came upon a home where one such sign was posted, so I asked.
“What do you love about your church?”
Her answer I don’t remember word for word, but it went something like this, “I love the fellowship and how welcoming everyone is. The messages too. I love how the messages are relevant for today.”
I so wanted her to say something else. Not that a fellowship and welcoming oriented church body is a bad thing, but I was left longing, hoping for something that just didn’t come.
What is your response? What do you love about your church?
I’ll share my answer tomorrow.
