I just got out of a meeting discussing our "State of the Church 2010" project for next year. It's very exciting! We're going to benchmark best practices in healthy churches, starting with "friendliness." In the works is an assessment tool that each church can use to determine whether they are or aren't friendly. And who cares about friendliness? Everyone should! Not just the smile and say hi kind of friendliness, but the kind of friendliness that leads to connection and community that's life-changing in the life of the church. Stay tuned! We keep trying to find new ways to serve you every day!
