It happens almost every time! I'm referring to an issue that arises after each Cache' Quick Introductions - in this case, the Coffee Connections. If you don't know, this is an event we hold in several different states which is a casual form of Christian speed dating. Well, this week we had a great event in Peoria, IL and also Glen Ellyn, which is in the Chicagoland area. Both events were well attended with 30 - 35 people at each. But, inevitably, the day after, someone will send us an email or call and say they wanted to hand someone a connection card containing their contact information, and they didn't do it.... and would we mind passing along their contact info? Now we don't mind helping people get connected, but this gets a little frustrating because we don't always have contact information on everyone who attends.
So we just want to say... "just hand them the card when you are there!" Of course, we recommend setting up an email beforehand for this purpose, so you are protected from revealing any personal information. If you see some red flags with this person later, just shut down the email and don't go any further, but it's better to err on the side of giving it a shot! I think sometimes as Christians, we can be over analytical about these things and miss out on some great opportunities. As long as we're praying and asking God to guide us along the way, I say, GO FOR IT, and see what God's got in store!
Make it a great day!
