A Season of Invitation

Alan and I went on a training course today about “A Season of Invitation” – it was really interesting. Some questions for you:

Is your church welcoming or is it inviting? (choose only one!)

Why don’t people invite people to church?

Do these reasons form a toxic creed?

Are we paralysed by a fear of rejection?

What would Christ say about rejection?

What is wrong with “no”? What is wrong with feeling vulnerable?

We were challenged not to focus on success but instead focus on faithfulness.

We were also challenged not to worry about whether we get a “no” or a “yes” – we plant the seeds, it is God who does the rest.

People said that “no” can lead to a really interesting conversation if we are willing to ask the next question, “if you con’t mind me asking, why?”
