The ushers are meaner than any junkyard dog

Ushers are often the first point of contact when entering a church building, especially when you’re a visitor. It never feels very welcoming when the first face that you see is wearing a scowl or barely says hello before they’re barking sharp directives at you. We get it, ushers are supposed to maintain order within the sanctuary, but doing so with a little love and kindness goes a long way. You never know what a person may be going through or how hard they fought to get to church. When ushers behave this way, it’s reflective of larger issues within that church’s culture.
