With many activities, events, and opportunities this Fall it’s important to be mindful about what it’s really all about. This quote from Alpha (attend on Tuesday nights this Fall!) that Pastor Stephen found is helpful:
It’s not about whether or not someone says yes to an invitation or how often we invite someone to another event. It’s about the invitation itself – the rest is up to God. Living a life of invitation should be present in our daily lives, as we become friends with an unlikely person, serve our communities, watch out for our neighbour and not be afraid to ask them for help, share things most important to us, and encourage the discouraged.
This is the invitational life – living life in such a way that gives people a safe space and the opportunity to explore life, faith and Jesus.
