That's right! It takes a lot less time to thank someone than it does to recruit a new volunteer.
It's unfortunate that there are many "leaders" who don't seem to possess those words in their vocabularies...
Yes Naomi, you are right. So many of our churches are dying because the core leaders are constantly driving away dedicated people who desperately want to serve God in their church. Then the same leaders are always complaining about the low attendance. Then they are scouting for new people who they will in due time drive away also.
