Walk Right In

Music HighwayThis time of the year brings back fond memories. Years ago, I was a member of a Christian church that celebrated annual autumn conventions where members from the surrounding areas and from all parts of the world gathered together for a full week of worship.

I remember volunteering as an usher on number of these worship events. As Christians came to the door I would greet them and hand them a hymnal. I knew that many had traveled hundreds, if not thousands of miles, to attend the conference. My goal, therefore, was to give the best first impression for them as they came in.

I was also aware that non-Christians would be coming in just to see what we were about. Some of the local journalists and TV people (incognito) would arrive. Business owners from restaurants, hotel personnel and local citizens would check us out. Because of that, ushering for me was very significant during those conferences.

Well, after the convention was over and returning to my local church home, I had a deeper appreciation of the service ushers provide for their congregations. I still do to this day.

If you are an usher of your church, remember that your service as usher is important in getting the members settled and ready for worship. You truly may be the first Christian light visitors will see when they arrive at the “gates” of your place of worship.

I, therefore, want to dedicate the YouTube video below to the Profession of Christian Ushers and Greeters of the Household of God.
