What's in a name?
Last week I was sweeping the leaves from the gutter in front of my house when a small pick-up truck parked nearby. The driver got out and yelled to me down the street, "Hey, You're the guy from the "Little Red Church." Turns out he was a regular visitor to our Food pantry. A day or so later, I went to the Staff of Life market to purchase some scrip for our program. When I said I had come in to pick up the scrip for Calvary Church, my contact there, who I have delt with for three years, said "I've been meaning to ask, Where is Calvary Church? When I told him it was at Lincoln and Cedar Streets, he said, "Oh, that’s the Little Red Church. Of course,
EVERYONE knows where the Little Red Church is!. He continued by saying, "That church is so small, I bet it's packed to standing room only, every Sunday." I said, "Not quite, but we are looking forward to it happening in the future." Since then, I have talked with many of the clients in the Food Pantry line who for the most part refer to us as "The Little Red Church."
The vibes I gathered from all this is that we have a great reputation in the community as the "LITTLE RED CHURCH."We should be very proud this moniker and build on it for some good use in the future.
