I went into a Starbucks coffee-house the others day, the cheerful barista greeted me with a cheerful “Hello, What have you been buying today?” She caught me off guard first by her openness and secondly by here friendliness. I’ve never approached by anyone with that level of enthusiasm before, It was as if I had made her day by being there, of course I was there for the coffee which brings me to my point. What if we displayed that level of Interest and friendliness in our local church toward stranger’s? If we did, we would soon be competing with Starbucks for customers on a sunday morning. Here are something’s I got out of the book I bought as a result of meeting baristas like here in Starbucks.
1. Be welcoming 2. Listen to individuals 3. Everything matters 4. Leave your mark.
