I first set foot inside a church (on purpose) on Easter Sunday 40 years ago.
I was full of uncertainty.
About what I believed.
About whether I really wanted to be there.
And about how to behave:*
- Would I have the wrong views?
- Would I have the wrong background?
- Would I have the wrong version of the Bible?
- Would I use the wrong lingo? (I didn’t speak “Christianese”)
In other words: I was dragging a lot of “luggage” with me!
My guess is many church visitors are carrying this kind of luggage. So I wrote a Saturday Night Live-style comedy sketch for church drama teams. If you’re interested in reading the script or performing it, click here. But wait–
I also made a video. To watch it, click on the image below:
May your first (on-purpose) visit to church be a beautiful, luggage-free experience!
*As I admitted in my first blog post, behaving properly has never been my strong suit.
