Superficial, Awkward, or Community?

Most churches begin a Sunday morning service with some sort of congregational greeting. They tell you to say hi to a few people around you. Sometimes they have you answer a question with your neighbor as well.

Well this weekend I am leading worship music (we’ve talked about this before) at my church (Sunset). So whether this greeting happens or not is sort of up to me. Not that I’m not some power trip or anything.

Some people love this, others think it is superficial and awkward, and others think it does a great job of creating community within a church body.

So I’m looking for your thoughts on this. What I want to know is what you think about a greeting during a service… it or hate it and why?

Go for it.
