Hearing what Matters

Listening to members’ questions can take many forms, from surveys to a simple exercise we recommend in the Church Wellness Project: at Sunday services, pass out 3 x 5 cards and ask members what one question they would pose to God.

My two favorite restaurants in New York City are Cafe con Leche, a plain Caribbean place at 96th and Amsterdam and, 10 blocks farther down Amsterdam, a tiny hamburger joint called Harriet’s Kitchen, which does mostly delivery business.
