  2. I would like to thank Pastor Roger for his comments in the September issue of "Rejoice" regarding the difference between friendliness and hospitality. I could so relate to the story of the visitor who stood in a church narthex amid coffee, conversation and laughter without a single person coming to welcome her personally. I, too, have had that experience (in Minnesota mind you, not Iowa), and it was the loneliest Sunday I have ever experienced. Thank you for bringing this to our attention and for explaining in detail just what we can do to show hospitality to strangers and welcome all who come to our church.

    1. Thanks, Rosella! I will make sure Pastor Roger sees your note.
