Church Announcement: Leave A Gospel Tract If You Like But Never In Place Of A Tip.
Reader I hate especially hate these money "gospel" tracts when people leave them as "tips" for their waiter WITHOUT actually leaving them a real monetary tip. Nothing worse than a cheap skate. If you don't have a tip to leave then don't leave anything. This is tasteless and definitely does not leave a good reflection of the gospel (in my opinion). If I were the waiter/waitress I would feel the same way. Leave a tract if you like, but NEVER in place of a tip.
Recently, the story of a server who received a religious tract in place of a tip went rather viral, and the debate about whether this was appropriate has been broad and vocal. Now, a pastor connected to the tract has spoken in response, and made his (and, according to him, his church’s) stance on the matter clear.
It began when, according to WCNC, a waiter received, instead of a tip, a religious tract, promising salvation if the reader would only follow its instructions. As the story went viral, people on social media expressed opinions on leaving a religious message instead of a tip. Read more here:
