Today was just great. For the last couple weeks I've been hearing a lot of my friends who are pastors talking about huge #s of people being out of church . I was feeling pretty blessed that we hadn't seen it yet. Well, we saw it today. I can count two dozen regular people who were out today. We even had three of our seven kids ministry leaders call out.
So, today we had our record low attendance but our record high giving day. If Jesus was right when he said that our hearts always follow our money (and He was right), that tells me that people's hearts are beginning to connect with our church. Love that. We're still seeing new guests each week and people beginning a new relationship with Jesus each week too!
