“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 18:20).
My first meeting with a potential board member went in a direction I did not expect. It took place at Starbucks over coffee. I started out by saying, “This is a very big project.” I had all of my information in place ready to share the plan w/her. I was ready to explain all that FOCUSED meant. I was ready to wait for a response, either yea or nay, as to her acceptance. I was ready to answer any questions, concerns anything that she may have had to make sure she understood the project. Her response? An immediate YES. I was shocked!
This is how our conversation proceeded:
Me: Well, do you need time to pray about it?
Me: Are you sure?
Marie: I am sure! I have been looking for something like this to be involved in, so this coming to me, YES!” And that was that!
