Shareable Quotes (#NewChurches):

  • “The Gospel is offensive, but nothing else should be.”
  • “We should take the biblical virtue of hospitality and put it together at an institutional level.”
  • “God’s not glorified in your personal hospitality when you invite someone into your home, but give them poor directions, a cold fast-food meal, and a half-hearted conversation.”
  • “The hospitality of a church can adorn the gospel and encourage faith.  On the flip side a cold and unfriendly church contradicts the gospel message.”
  • “Seek to create the kind of environment where your guests will say, ‘I don’t necessarily agree with everything that I heard, but I certainly can’t argue with how I was treated.”
