Like it or not, when you visit it is not just you visiting. In the mind of the person you are visiting you represent, no, you are, Jesus and the Church. This is one of the main reasons people get so angry when they are not visited.

However, I can tell you from a lot of experience, that if you visit as part of your ministry you will not only become extremely popular, very quickly (these old ladies gossip among themselves and your fame will spread) but all your shortcomings will be overlooked. It is very difficult to do wrong if you are a visiting minister.

Visiting is not trendy but as Jesus did so much of it, and he became quite popular, I strongly suggest you make it the number one priority in your future ministry.

Mad Priest,
You're so right about that. I'm glad you reminded me that we are representing Christ, even if we see it differently, or (in my case) are a bit uncomfortable with that idea.
