Posts Tagged ‘Church similar to restaurant’

Is too much to presume you’ve eaten at a café/restaurant

where the food was so-so but the scene/setting was great? Or you’ve eaten where the setting was OK but the chef “knew his stuff.” A church is similar to a restaurant: a pastor should “know his stuff” i.e. be a reader/memorizer of the Word and put “food on the table” (possible only as HE is growing deeper in Christ). The setting/atmosphere for the “restaurant” is the congregation. People may return if a pastor is so-so but the atmosphere i.e. people have spiritual warmth. Or they may come again if the chef/pastor gives food i.e. spiritual challenge though the people aren’t warm. If you’re a pastor BE a good cook. If you’re not the pastor pray before coming to service, be attentive during service and friendly after service.

Pastor and people, with God’s help, can make a great “restaurant.”
