During my long drive yesterday, we got to discussing many topics. One topic that came up was churches and church members that are friendly and supportive. I've experience both ends of the friendliness spectrum in churches I've attended and visited. I was attempting to explain how supportive our church was compared to the one I grew up in. I also wanted her to know how fortunate she was to be a part of that community.
However, my companion told me in no uncertain terms that churches are always friendly because they are always trolling for new members and financial support!
I was also told that if a church and its members came across to me as unfriendly or rude, it was because of the demeanor that I projected when I attended that church and attempted to talk to the people there.
Obviously there was no further discussion on this topic. See link.
