The thing that strikes me most strongly is that Paul this great theologian with a worldwide ministry was also personal. He took the time to get to know people and made a point of remembering them and greeting them in his letters.
If Paul could find the time to be personal and get to know his fellow worshippers, we should be able to, too. This coming Sunday, could you make a point of talking to someone you’ve never met before?
Find someone who looks lonely or is there for the first time. It may not be culturally appropriate to greet them with a holy kiss, but a friendly hello and a conversation where you genuinely listen to them could be even better. (And try to remember their name for when you see them next week!)
