Me: (to someone I just met): “you go to church?”
Him: “Yes, we go with my mother in law to her church.”
Me: “Great! What church is it?”
Him: “New Harvest Church over on Elm Street.” (fictional church and street names)
“Where is your church?”
Me: “Prosperity Farms Road, just north of PGA BLVD.”
Him: “That’s closer to us. Maybe we’ll come to your church.”
Me: “No, please stay at your church. We aren’t trying to reach people who are already in church. We are trying to reach people who don’t go to church.”
Him: “OK. I understand”.
Me: “God bless!”
So, how’d I do?
