I was headed to a fundraising course. Instead I came away with a church management think tank.
Now, of course, those who were in the video conference took away information on fundraising for non-profits. But every time the instructor mentioned something, my mind switched over to how this would apply to church work.
The funds needed became the resources that a church uses. The approach to people became the hand reaching out to those in need of a place to put their lives (their greatest resources).
And so, although I was up early in the morning – I did not tire! In fact, as I write this in the last hours of the day, I’m still thinking. Refreshed by the completely unexpected!
