Welcome vs. invitation

March 28, 2017

ONE IS RELUCTANT – as a Yankee – to again highlight a church from Texas. But it is impossible to ignore the compelling way in which St. Mark’s in Irving, Tex., describes what it means to be a member of that parish. We may observe a distinction here, with difference, between welcome for welcome’s sake, or welcome to prove that one is not a bigot, and an invitation into a community of faithful Christian discipleship.

As many churches dawdle in the weeds of liberal guilt and fashionable emotivism, our Texas cousins provide a robust account of what it means both to be a Christian and to be a member of a parish church.
