I love reading everyone's newsletters (usually between 25-30/week) and keeping up with what the SWC churches are doing. But what are my real reasons for doing this? I want folks to think as they read this "What a cool idea! We could do that!" Or "I wonder if that church could use some help with that project. It's in keeping with the mission of my church." Or " I'd love to attend that event/workshop. Could we maybe bring it to my church?" Or "We do that, too. I wonder if we could learn how to do it better by consulting each other." Or. "Is my church in there this week?" Why do you read it? –Holly
