I am very thankful for John (George) Nichols and this article he sent my way, which considers practical steps of becoming a more outreaching or welcoming church. As we are a church that is interested not only soaking in the ministry of Christ and His Spirit, we also long to bless others with the same ministry we have received. In looking through this list, my heart has been encouraged because there are a number of things we are doing already. On the other hand, some points are likewise encouraging because they bring to mind some new thoughts for us. Overall, I trust that Lord will bless us as we strive to be Christ's witnesses in a watching world.
