Is this what church feels like?



An excellent advert which prompts the question:
‘Is this what church feels like to many visitors?’
h/t Paul Trathen.

Brilliant!! Love it! Sadly, this may resemble the experience of some church's visitors - perhaps not the drink at the end though!! lol. I often use adverts etc to get a point across - think I may show this one. Thanks for sharing it!!

I love this! In my experience I have to say, I wish church would feel a bit more like it. In some of the churches I visited I felt more like I was an unwelcome guest. This is not true for most of them though.

Yep, except for the welcome at the end....

Actually perhaps this is what many Clergy feel like when confronted with Churches too :-) And there is an Irony that the ones here doing the welcoming are those who would be least welcome in many Churches.... yet I know who I am naturally inclined to spend time with ;-)

I suppose it depends where you are - I have just moved from a Jesuit (RC) parish in North London, very multicultural and welcoming.... but so varied that I think anyone would 'fit in' including our fair share of nutters!

It's sometimes a little like that for the regulars. ;-) And it's very much how the closeknit world of Christian blogging looks to a relatively new reader.

Evidently beer is the answer. :D I find it is for most things....

brilliant. Would also echo Gills comment - it took me ages to pluck up the courage to post my first comment in blogland.

Interesting that the women seem to have less of a problem with the situation, it's usually the blokes who are bailing. I can relate to that!!
