I have just had an interesting discussion with some of my contempories, all fellow believers and members of the same church. I wouldn't classify us as neandertal but we are all senior citizens. The discussion centered around the manner we recieve new believers into our fellowship. All candidates are counseled (privately) and invited to a monthly luncheon where they are photographed and and the photo shown on the overhead projector at the evening service with the instruction that they are invited to attend but it is not necessary. From my observation about 50% do not attend the service where their photo is shown for a vote to recieve them. My personal opinion was that this was probably a trend in the larger churches and was not unduly alarmed, but I would run it up the BB flagpole. So here it is. What is your opinion?
