Thank-you to everyone who took part in today's Secret Stranger Sunday. Also, thanks to all the churches who ministered to Westside's Secret Strangers - maybe your church was one of them!
For those wondering about the meaning of all of this, we cancelled this morning's service so everybody could have the opportunity to be a stranger/visitor in another church. Afterwards, we bag-lunched it back at Westside and shared and discussed our experiences.
The goal of this exercise was to learn how we can better help people to have the best first-time encounter when visiting us and everybody's observations and ideas were really helpful. We all left with a refreshed perspective about the important role each of us plays in the experiences of our visitors.
