SOME THOUGHTS ON USHERING

At services of the Church of Christ, Scientist, held in various parts of the world the following announcement is made by the First Reader: "You are cordially invited to attend our church services." The words are not always the same, but the invitation is.

Having extended such an invitation, the church must see that those who accept the invitation are given the loving reception to which guests are entitled. The ushers whom the church appoints have a definite part in extending this welcome. For example, when the guests enter the church, they should be greeted with a smile of welcome. Should they enter the church during the singing of a hymn, the usher should be quick to hand them a Hymnal opened to the hymn which is being sung, so that they may join promptly in the singing. On Sundays a Christian Science Quarterly should be available for their use. When the service is over, it is sometimes possible to introduce the guests to a few of the members and to ask them to come again.
