Would John be welcome?

Would John the Baptist be welcome in our churches today? 

"John was clothed with camel's hair and wore a leather belt around his waist, and his diet was locusts and wild honey"

"John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins." (Mark 1 NASB)

Here is a very strange person, unconventional, outspoken.  Telling us to repent, do we have time for this?

Advent is the time! As we prepare for the true meaning of Christmas, it is not the gifts or the Christmas (Winter Festival) trees.  It is the birth of a Savior.  

As we prepare, it is time to welcome all as we :'MAKE READY THE WAY OF THE LORD,
MAKE HIS PATHS STRAIGHT.'"(Mark 1 NASB, Isaiah 40:3).

Let us welcome ALL even the John the Baptist types!
