From Welcome to Belonging

From Welcome to Belonging - God's Welcome and the Local Church

welcome-to-belongingReflections upon the welcome we offer at our local churches

In our high-tech society more and more people rely on technology and mechanisation to serve and communicate with others. In some ways this is a great asset – to more easily contact others when out and about by mobile phone, to quickly and easily send messages to groups of people via email.  We can do our banking and shopping on-line without leaving the home. However it may mean that we have lost something of the 'personal touch' and sense of belonging with others in our communities. The church may use technological advances, but primarily is a fellowship of people who are to physically embody God's love and grace in a personal way and do this by welcoming and including all who would seek God's peace and meaning in their lives into the world-wide body of Christ.
