Creating a Culture of Hospitality Part 2 by John Turner


Creating a Culture of Hospitality Part 2: He Remembers that We are Dust

If you have a hard time talking to new people, sometimes all you need is a little help with what to say exactly. If you're not sure what to say, here's a few simple examples of what you can say to guests. Give it a try and see where it leads!

  • "Welcome to Heartland this morning!"

  • "We're glad you are here this morning!"

  • "Good morning, welcome to our church!"

  • "I've not met you yet. My name is..."

  • "I don't believe I've met you yet, have I?"

    Now, here's what not to say:

  • "Are you new here?" or "Is this your first time?" (these affirm the guest's nervous situation and make them feel like outsiders)

  • Nothing.

    Remember Colossians 4:6, "Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone."
