Can Pokemon Lead to the Gospel? The primary opportunity for the Church here is hospitality, particularly in an era when so few people consciously come to us anymore. People are getting outside, meeting strangers, and creating their own communities. Our role in this is to give these people a positive experience of the Church when the game brings them our way. People are coming to our parish buildings and we can either do what should be the norm, show hospitality like Jesus, or we can build a wall by being unwelcoming by looking down on the game or the people who play.
