In your job, if someone fails to turn up for work one morning, I’m sure you try to contact them to make sure they haven’t encountered a problem on their journey to work, and just make sure they are ok.
What about in your church, when one of the people in your church, doesn’t attend one week, what do you d0? Nothing?
What if that person doesn’t turn up at church the following week either?
If we call ourselves Christians, we should be supporting and caring for those around us – and that includes our family, friends, work colleagues, fellow church members.
When someone is absent from church for even one week, isn’t that the time when they are most in need of their fellow Christian brothers and sisters reaching out to them to check how they are, and encourage them by telling them that they have been missed, otherwise they may think no-one has even noticed they were evening missing!
