Shoving the ungodly out into the darkness…

Oh, hold on, no. This is supposed to be about inclusion.

Tell you what, we can use a regular form of church service to make the experience of newbies a bit more uniform and provide continuity between different service leaders.

We could sing simple clear songs with inspiring lyrics.

We could provide childcare and coffee.

We could make service content accessible with contemporary language.

Hey, we could even use a hyped up amplified Bible translation.

And then we could wonder why nobody new comes. The church I see can be so much of a Social Club that it risks being members-only.

Although if you listen carefully between songs, you’ll just be able to hear the ungodly gnashing outside the gates.
