[Member 1] First we’ll go to the ABC, then to Word, followed by Koorong - if we’re lucky they’ll have restocked the Gather bargain bins. 
[Visitor looks puzzled and returns to centre of stage while member 2 leaves]

[Presenter] Welcome to chapter 14 of Church Hospitality made easy, I’m your host, Ray Martin.
In this chapter we’re talking about how to keep people from leaving church through hospitality.

There are many ways to prevent members from leaving the church, such as using the art of infinite conversation to deny any opportunity for someone to leave.

[Member 2] Hi, great service wasn’t it, did you like it, I liked it, do how was your week, mine was terrible, let me tell you all about it.

[Presenter] Another method is to never open any windows to provide oxygen to the brain during long sermons, preventing rational decision making.
