Who Is More Welcome?
In our church, who is more welcome and who is valued, the insider or the outsider? I think the answer is sometimes painfully obvious and I don't know how to fix that problem. There's no easy one-fix solution. Certainly, spending time with outsiders is a way to gain perspective. But even further, sometimes the content of our worship can give us perspective: what we sing about, what we celebrate, what we preach about.
