No young people
A very familiar reason for not inviting is the following one is “We don’t invite young people as they don’t stay because we have no young people!” There is no doubt there is truth in this statement, young people definitely attract young people. But the reason why we don’t invite young people is ultimately flawed as it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. It is self-defeating. It leaves out God. We are a generation that devalues the contributions of the elders in our society. Yet the elders have a lot to teach the young. Invite someone younger than you today to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
