Rick Warren is a masterful communicator. So, what is he endeavoring to communicate with his announcement that they are canceling the services at Saddleback Church this weekend so they can serve their neighbors?
According to The Christian Post:
“Good Neighbor Weekend” has been enthusiastically received by the majority of the 20,000 members at Saddleback Church in Orange County. Many have already signed-up online for acts of kindness, according to church officials.
Volunteer opportunities suggested and organized by church members include visiting severely disabled children in hospitals, serving breakfast to homeless and families living in motels, and helping families having members in the military stationed away from home with house chores.
Additionally, many more churchgoers will be reaching out to their neighbors in ways they’ve conceived themselves.
Did you catch that number? 20,000 people! That’s a lot of people.
Let’s think about this then in terms of pros and cons (concerns).
