A few weeks ago, I wrote about my efforts at Fitting In.
Now I'm working on an article featuring advice to people in groups who want to be more welcoming. Would you think about a time when you were a newcomer--into a new church, club, or small group?
What were big or small efforts that people made that helped you feel welcome and comfortable?
What about things that were done that you wouldn't recommend--what made you feel unwelcome or uncomfortable?
You can share in the comments--either as yourself or anonymously--or you can email me using the link on my sidebar. I won't be using your name or quoting sources directly. I'm just looking for ideas.
