Have you ever gone to a sporting event, concert, debate, or any other area where you are clumped together with a bunch of people you don’t know and thought to yourself, “I wish I could shake a few of these strangers hands and have an awkward 6 second relationship with them?” Probably not, but if you come to church, get ready to briefly meet a few people. We do it because we hope it will plant the seeds of community but I think there are a few things you need to know:
1. Don’t shake anyone’s hand if they look like they have a cold or the flu. Give them at the maximum a fist bump.
2. Don’t remember a stranger’s name and then the following week say, “Hey Shirley” because chances are Shirley didn’t remember your name and is going to do that uncomfortable thing where she says, “Hey buddy, hey pal, oh, hey you.”
3. Don’t give your husband a neck rub during the entire sermon. This is off topic, but seriously, it’s a little gross. You know who I’m talking about lady in Atlanta.
