Today at church we had a great lesson on activating the lesser active members of our church, and also those that are investigating the church. I just thought Michelle did such a great job, helping us realize all the resources the church has.
However, some of the comments in the class made me wonder.
I remember my mom telling me this story once when I was going into Junior high. She had a friend who had walked down the hall of somewhere (let’s pretend it was at school) and she was SO mad that her friend hadn’t said hi to her… and my mom reminded me that it is ME that needs to say high, and that making the effort yourself is what it’s all about.
The person that is going to actvate you is YOU. If you think you don’t have enough friends, gather your courage and invite a family that you met a church over for dinner. It’s just plain silly to sit around and wait for people to invite YOU places.
In fact, Drew and I were just invited to a family’s house that has just moved-in near us. She has a little boy the same age as Conner, and a little the same as Spencer. I am impressed by the courage it takes to invite an unknown family over to your house. And that’s the way life happens people — you’ve gotta take it into your own hands.
And now, that blog made no sense… could be fast sunday…
