Two Numbers that Blew Me Away

I received an email a little while ago from the treasurer of the church, also my co-chair of Stewardship. Here's the first sentence:

"Hey Chris - we got a full 51 pledges for $150k on Sunday! That is a really stellar start and beats the hell out of response other years!"

This just blows me away because when I first accepted the role of "Commissioner of Stewardship", I had no clue what I was doing and I'm pretty sure that hasn't changed but somehow sticking to the one rule I set for myself - always speak from the heart to the people, not at them - it seems to have made a difference.

I don't know where it will go from here but I am happy.

This is great - especially in the current economic situation!
