I’ll tell you one thing that Protestants do better than Catholics (generally speaking).
Welcoming outsiders/visitors into their churches.
When I came into the Church, I ‘parish hopped’ for over a year. I was **never **welcomed, spoken to, or greeted by anyone in all those different churches. If I hadn’t been 100% convinced of the necessity of me being Catholic, I’d never have come back.
OTOH, nearly **every **protestant church I’ve ever been to has had someone welcome me, ask me my name, talk to me, etc. I felt invited, loved, and welcomed. (One Episcopal parish I visited presented me with a gift bag full of handmade and homemade gifts… of course, that was Southern Hospitality as well as Christian, but it was touching!) While that’s not enough to base a decision on whether or not to be Lutheran vs Anglican vs Catholic, etc, it sure as heck makes us Catholics look like we don’t know what Christian Hospitality looks like! :rolleyes:
(by the way, hospitality is one of the MAJOR themes in scripture. Something we Catholics don’t do well and ought to work on!)
