One of the features here is “Ask EvangelismCoach.org“, a place where you can submit a question that’s on your mind about evangelism. I collect them for ideas for future articles, and is a great conversation starter.
A recent one that came in was:
I’m so excited to have found your website – you were recommended by the Evangelism person on staff at PCUSA in Louisville, KY.
There’s a specific question on my mind, one that is causing quite a fuss at the church I’m serving as an interim pastor. Here’s the question: should first time visitors be asked to stand up during the worship service, identify themselves, and receive a flower that then identifies them as visitors to the more tenured members of the congregation?
Before I share my answer, I’d like to hear from some of the regular readers who get this via RSS feed, or some of the recent visitors who are here for the first time.
