Hang Out at the Well


"Jesus didn't hang out in synagogues. He hung out at wells. Wells were natural gathering places in ancient culture." -- Mark Batterson

Ponder this. Where are the "wells" located in your community? Where's the place where your church can naturally cross paths with your community?

We definitely need to be open to thinking outside the box, that's for sure! Interesting: watering holes?

People hang out where they feel loved, respected and wanted. Thirsty individuals hang out where they can receive a cool, perhaps warm, drink to satisfy their longings.

It is not where but what you find or encounter that determines where you hang out.

I think "The Well" would be a great name for the coffee shop at church. :o)
