Diagnosing why our congregations don’t invite

The most important thing in communication is to hear what isn’t being said. So when I ask the question around the world why a particular congregation doesn’t invite, I am not always going to take the first answer that I receive as the real answer There is a power in questions. The ability to be able to forensically examine, to get to the root of the problem, was displayed by Jesus time and time again, for example the woman at the well and the rich young ruler. Examine the questions Jesus asked and put them into practice, and we will have a better chance of hearing the real reasons our congregations don’t invite.
