    For those critical of their pastor’s visitation habits, I wonder when was the last time you invited your pastor to visit you? For those who expect their pastor’s to stick their noses into everyone’s business for pastoral care, when was the last time you invited your pastor into your personal business?

    The point of inviting my Pastor to visit is well taken. He should be made to feel welcomed in my home as friend and Pastor.
    When addressing visitation to shut-ins and institutionalized, every reasonable attempt should be made by Pastor and lay people to do so. The eligible shut-ins, etc., value a visit and receiving communion on a regular basis.
    As any human being, some Pastors are better than others at this. Never-the-less, it needs to be done by every church.
