You can be an evangelist . . . Invite a Friend to Church!

Sometimes the “liturgical” among us will ask me either what I want for Epiphany (tongue-in-cheek) or what the church wants. I have been thinking about this some and I decided if I wanted anything, or the church needed anything, it would be an inviting attitude of Christian hospitality from our wonderful church members.

Thus, if you want to give a gift of love to someone, then, invite a friend, neighbor, co-worker, or family member to attend a service with you during this season of Epiphany or Lent which follows. Afterward, you might even go so far as to share a meal with your guests and talk with them about how important your faith is to you.

Believe it or not, this kind of gracious hospitality we can offer with an affable spirit. Many people are receptive to an invitation by a friend to attend worship at or around the Epiphany season as it this worship season that begins a New Year and people want to become better than they are. The New Year allows all of us to start over. For some of us, the person who introduced us to Jesus may have been one of the most warm-hearted, far-seeing people we have ever known.

Go and be that person for someone else. Become for them a great Epiphany present.
