Now that's a "Wow" Experience!

I received this email earlier today from a Staff member at our church:

Hats off to Doris! Greg talked to a man yesterday morning. He attended here 6 years ago when his friend invited him. A few months later his friend stopped attending so he stopped also. He came back about 6 weeks ago, and the first day back in 6 years, Doris greeted him with "Hello Bob." He was blown away she remembered his name after 6 years. He told Greg, "That's it, I'm staying."

Don't we all wish we had a Doris? Well, we aren't sharing so don't ask!

Doris is someone that you can be rest assured will greet you when you come in the door each Sunday. There are weeks where you can walk by and not even notice her, because you are so used to seeing her there. Then there are other weeks, where it seems like God placed her at the door just for you.

However, extraordinary events like the one in the email are great to hear. It is exciting to see how God can use someone like Doris to bring someone home, through Love and Grace. All with two words...."Hello Bob"...

Great job Doris! I am glad I get to share a church with wonderful people like you!
