Inviting the church to go beyond welcome to Transformation
Christians say to me that their friends won’t want to come to church because they are busy on a Sunday. The church nowadays has to compete against the Sunday lie in, Sunday football, Sunday shopping, visiting relatives and a variety of other activities. In fact it is surprising we have anyone attending with such opposition. In business I was always taught that we should be providing a service that other people need with more value than your competitor is able to offer. Christianity without Christ cannot compete, but with Christ it leads to transformation. The world cannot compete against such a transformational invitation.
