So, I asked my daughter if she would rather go to our church or the church that she had visited with me the week before.
She said that she would like to go back to the other church and when I asked her why she said:
‘Because I want to see Lucy!’
Lucy is a teenager who welcomed and played with my 8 year old daughter before and after the service and she also taught the Sunday school class.
This church certainly isn’t the perfect church (I’m not sure that such a thing even exists) but they do have a Lucy!
My daughter was welcomed, she felt cared for and valued and so she would like to go back.
Every church needs Lucy’s who will fulfill this important role and the good news is that we can all be a Lucy to someone else! So what is stopping you?
Take some time to think about the people who you might meet today. How can we welcome, care for and value them?
Oh and having thought about it she says she also wants to see Tierney as well. Tina is also a teenager who welcomed and played with my daughter 🙂
So if you don’t want to be a Lucy, you can always be a Tierney!
Really inspiring, Graeme!
