welcoming materials that are actually welcoming


This sign (via Creating Passionate Users, a blog of which I'm a huge fan) from the Sydney Botanic Gardens would be a wonderful model for welcoming materials for congregations, wouldn't it? What if we looked at such materials -- signs outdoors, brochures in the narthex, welcome messages in the bulletins, and even (or especially!) rubrics in the order of service not as "Keep Out!" signs marking off what people ought NOT to do, but as warm invitations to experience and enjoy God's presence in the community?
