The Offering: “Making It Count”
If I’m a guessing man – Id wager that most of us place the offering at the end of the service. If I’m also guessing properly…then I’d guess that most congregants end up reacting to our treatment of the offering much like Pavlov’s dog – a very conditioned response:
…hear/see offering …prepare to leave.
This isn’t the response we really want. After all, the offering is just as important to our services as singing or prayer. So…how do we treat it as such?
What have tried that is successful?
What is different that works?
