Last night I knocked on some more doors, inviting families to our neighborhood discussion group on parenting. It was cold and windy again, but I'm tough.
People were very receptive again when I explain the idea. I had one guy go off about the neighborhood association, how they never plan anything. Most people are just amazed that someone is taking the initiative to bring the neighborhood together.
I had my first rude resonse, though. After about 10 seconds of explaining myself, the lady said "we're not interested" and shut the door in my face. The best part of it all was that she was wearing a MidAmerica Nazarene sweatshirt. Way to represent our denomination!
