Spread the Word!
For those of you who have been attending The Lobby for a while, I want to say thank you. Thank you for all your support.
That said - I have one fear I would like to express to my friends at The Lobby. Our family is shrinking - just a bit, and very slowly, but we are. I know that quantity isn't everything - but it is something.
So here is my challenge to every one of you who has become a Lobbyist. When you look back to your times before The Lobby, maybe before Church at all, who do you remember? That is, who took the time with you to get to know you, share their story, and learn your story? Who first invited you to The Lobby?
Once you have remembered that person, remember what he or she did, said, etc. Could you do that too? What if every person in The Lobby invited just one other person? Just one other person to come and share in our coffee, our conversations, our beloved service. That is all I ask - that each person try and invite one new person very soon. You all have friends outside The Lobby and we would all love to get to know them.
