I did a post on this a while ago and have to say that it is still a topic that comes to mind every Sunday at church.
I love my church,its large and there are spots for everyone to fill in.I have my niche and I love it.But its the "in crowd" that I hate.
They are the ones who think that they are above all the common folks and attend the trendy "class".Not to improve themselves but to network.
Their kids get picked to sing solos or act the main roles in plays.
I hate the way they ignore newcomers to church.How much does it cost you to say hello to someone you dont know or recognise?
I have a hard time being social but I always try to say hello to anyone I see and there are those who will turn their heads if you dont belong to "the holy grail" and dare say hello to them!
Our adult Sunday school class is gaining in numbers and its because everyone is so friendly and talk to each other and I am grateful for them.
This verse comes to mind....
Blessed are the meek: for they shall posses the land
