Every Friday

I worked some overtime today. The big boss asked us to start a large project on Friday and it flowed over into today. It was actually pretty cool things went down that way.

The building felt cold and empty devoid of all it’s weekly activity, but a sense of camaraderie was built between the three of us working. During a quick lunch break our supervisor told us some hilarious stories about living all over the world and working for the army.

At 3pm, as we exited the building we continued is some small talk that ended with,

See you on Monday.

That’s when it hit me like a tons of bricks – why didn’t I say,

Hey would you like to come to church with me tomorrow?

I’ve invited people from work to come to church, but it’s usually in the middle of the week. By the time the weekend rolls around people forget. I figure I absolutely love the people I work with – they are awesome. But, if I really love them, why aren’t I being more intentional about inviting them to church?

My new game plan is to try to make a habbit of inviting everyone to church on Fridays. I don’t want to be pushy or rude about it, but simply consistent. I figure in the end everyone would appreciate this. My hope is to do it every Friday.

    Might be cool to invite them to dinner on Saturday night too.

    Way to go Billy! I do the same at work, the only thing is I live 72 miles from where I work. Life is just a couple of miles away from me. So the staff that I work with mostly lives down by work. I’m not so sure they’d be willing to make the drive.
