My congregational unit agreed to work together to change some of our “bad habits.” We’ve decided to reevaluate some of our traditional practices as we attempt to assure our place in this organization for generations to come.
One bad habit we have is that of turning to ‘old reliable.’ You know, relying on the person or people who have always come through in the past.
We often discuss how inviting people to our Women of the ELCA meetings and events matters. We should also include with the invitation a task they could help us with. This would make them feel a part of the organization. I’d rather risk having someone tell me no than to make them feel unneeded. Most of us enjoy feeling needed, right?
