I'm glad my body aches

My post below mentions how tired I was (still ache) from walking through neighborhoods for 6 hours yesterday. But as soon as I got home, I already had this message in my inbox.

Hello. This is my RSVP for Saturday and Sunday to see Laura Murphy. I am hoping she can help us with our wild daughter. Thank you very much for making this possible. My children will not be coming with us on Saturday, but will on Sunday.

Yep, it was worth it walking through those neighborhoods.

I've been talking with TFC about doing the same thing together tonight as a church. It's been raining all day but it looks like it's finally let up. I don't know if anyone will show up though and help pass out flyers. When we don't get participation in stuff like this, it makes me question my leadership. Did I not publicize it enough? Have I not thoroughly communicated the importance of doing this? I know that telling stories is how we motivate people and I hope the story of the above email inspires people to hit the street for Jesus!

Donnie, it is time to start asking for help, not just from the pulpit (you do that effectively), but directly. Start with your leaders and then expand to those that have expressed interest in leadership. Not me though, because I am sure I am busy that day. That was a joke, laugh now. We are lazy people that not only need to be motivated, but challenged and sometimes dragged kicking and screaming. And some of us really want to be leaders, we just need prodded. pushed and kicked.
