"Will I even fit in with those people? What if I get on the wrong bus?
"Is it easy to figure out how to get where I need to go ?"
"Will the driver be helpful or judgmental?"
"How and who do I give my money to?"
"Will it be something I become more comfortable with?"
"What will it feel like on the bus? Will it be clean?"
"Who will I sit next to?"
In the next few posts I want to unpack the similarities of riding a bus for the first time and going to church. I will break the posts down into five topics, The Need, Overcoming Fears, First Impressions, Fitting In, and Telling Others.
We can learn a lot about our churches and how visitors feel and then remove some of the barriers that prevent people from coming back.
