    Love the comment card. Sounds like something I’d write and one of many reasons I’d make a mental note of in deciding on returning to a church.

    I’m a rebel. During “welcome” times, I just stand there looking bored, practically daring anyone to come and shake my hand. Sometimes I even cough into my hand very loudly. I also eschew any hugs, because, who knows where those arms have been?

  4. “Have I told you lately, that I love you?” Yes, I was mentally singing that line. You crack me up. I SO needed to laugh this morning. Moving to two new states in under 3 years has taught us to hate the “greet your neighbor” portion of the service. I have re-introduced myself to Frances and her husband Billy for 3 months of Sundays and not gotten even the slightest hint of recognition. I have been told by a complete stranger that God told her to pray for me, because I was lost. AND have also stood helplessly while NO ONE even looked in our direction. What’s even better than the forced hug? Having 3 different churches at your house AT THE SAME TIME on Monday visitation night…while a fourth pastor was on the phone lost!!! I quit filling out visitors cards after that. Tell Mer “HI”! and that I love her too. Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
