I think inviting needs to involve listening to the losses and longings of the people entrusted to your congregation's care (your community).

The information on vision/purpose and invitation is helpful. The invitation ideas are helpful.

actual examples are very helpful

It is very important to invite people, but to maintain that which you have invited them to share! Don’t invite them to a big festival event and then relapse into ‘boring’ and disinterested.
