Reasons I Love My Church, #216:

At the First Time Guest Tent last Sunday, a guest filled out one of our info cards.  At the bottom of the card, we always ask this question: “How did you hear about the Summit?”  Here’s her response…

When my daughter went through [the] drive thru, someone from Summit paid for her food and left a business card.

People, that’s what it’s all about.  Random Summit members pulling up to Mickey D’s, and rather than being content to pay for their own meal and drive off, they turn it into an opportunity to live an others-focused and gospel-centered life.  Can you imagine being the recipient of such kindness?  Can you imagine what was going through this woman’s mind?

Most of all…can you imagine how cool it’s gonna be when somebody in this family comes to know Christ because of a free order of french fries?

Dang, I love this church.

    Great idea.

    Good grief, you’re only on reason #216? We’ve spent less time at the Summit then you and just hit #342!!!!

    A church in our area does the same thing and leaves the card (wonderful idea!). Word on the street here is that Starbucks won’t pass on the business card. They just throw it in the trash, and they’ve told their customers that that’s what they do. They say it is the Starbucks policy. Sad. But maybe they still get the idea that someone loves them through kindness.

    • Danny says:

      Wow. I’m one of Starbucks’ biggest fans (and probably one of their best customers, based on consumption), don’t get me wrong. But this seems like it flies in the face of their goal to be the community’s “third place.” What’s the harm in passing along the source of where that generosity came from?

      Thanks for the comment, Julia.
