I had an amazing conversation with a woman on my tennis team this morning whom I don’t know well. Dawn approached me and asked me if I would drive her to our tennis match in Ramona. I was driving with her in my car when the topic turned amazing.In the course of getting to know each other, we shared about our families and our passions. Dawn was telling me how her kids (now high school and college) were in the youth program at RBCPC
in middle school, but then lost steam and interest as they aged out. We talked about how the church at large is losing members. She said RBCPC is a special place…it seems to be more than a church.By this point, we had arrived and continued to chat on the tennis courts. I started to tell her about missional work and how we were trying to understand how to be on mission with God in the community, especially to connect with the next generation by coming alongside and being with others who have a calling
to make a difference. …then Dawn says to me without any prompting:
I just about dropped my tennis racquet and gave her a hug. What an amazing confirmation that God is at work in ways that we have no idea about. God is truly amazing!
