Inviting > Welcoming

Our Internet is having some issues, so I can't access the link, but yesterday I read an article on which made a great point. (here is the link)

If you have the choice, don't be a welcoming church.
Be an inviting church.

Why inviting over welcoming?

Because one is active whilst the other is passive.

One goes to the people whilst the other waits for people to come to them.

Best of all? If your church is inviting, then by default, they will be welcoming to people who are invited since that's how they'll want their invitees to be treated!
