I have been reading much lately about the need for a more relational approach to ministry. More and more I recognize how much of my time is spent in the office - away from my students. I need to spend more time with people.
Today my goal was to track someone down and take them to lunch. I expected this to be easy. I made five phone calls before giving up.
Pom pom practice
Plans at the mall
One never returned my call
One simply declined
On a positive note, a did get two solid rain checks and one "Like, ok, totally for sure some other time" in consolation.
Does it really have to be this difficult?
