Reblog: You can’t reach everyone

Any time you do anything as a church; whether the time you meet, the place your meet; or the style of your meeting… you will make it near impossible for thousands of people to come along.
That’s not a theological thing, its not a sin thing, its just a human thing. Humans are all different. They have likes, preferences, responsibilities, etc…
By all means, try and suit as many people as you can, but don’t get caught in the trap in trying to suit every single person. Just deal with the fact that there will be some people who you – personally and even corporately (as a church body) – won’t be able to suit.
The danger is that in trying to suit those minorities, you will in fact make it harder to reach the people what you’re much better suited – by God’s grace – to reach.
