First Impressions for the Church

Sometimes I wonder what first impression I've made on people. I'm not the most sociable person in the world, and so I often make the mistake of making others feel ignored. However, even when I'm intentional, sometimes I send the wrong message.

The same is true of the church, I think. We constantly fight a battle of others making the first impression for the church on our behalf: mormons and evangelists going door-to-door often make a first impression, church members adding to the traffic on the streets surrounding a person's destination can make a first impression, and even some of our well-intended signs and services can make an interesting first impression.

Have a laugh at the first impression example below, and then ask yourself, do I know what kind of first impression I'm making on others?
