Rev. Sharon MacArthur, Berkeley Chinese Community Church, Berkeley, CA

It was a spirited, energetic and delightful hands-on, participatory day during which we listened, shared, and laughed… The next day, Mabel was chatting with a friend who many of us know only socially … Mabel started speaking in a very excited tone about my coming on board and before she knew it, she was inviting her to come to worship. The look on her face when it dawned on her that she had just invited someone to church was a Kodak moment if only I had my cellphone poised to take a photo! Her eyes widened and her usual happy look on her face became look of huge surprise and delight – “I asked someone to church!” Yes! I would say the workshop was a huge success….it was also a God-is-present moment!
