The interview will be an e-mail and/or phone interview and will happen over the next week. As I work through the questions and respond, I'll post my answers here as well. Here are the questions I've been asked:
- Can you give any examples of how a church (probably inadvertently) has made a visiting preacher feel unwelcome?
- What tips can you offer so a congregation can make a visiting preacher feel welcome? This could include hospitable gestures in the days before, during, or after the worship service.
- What advice do you have for visiting preachers, especially seminarians, on how to be good guests in another church's pulpit? What are the best ways to prepare for a visiting preaching assignment?
