Beecher Hicks, our keynote speaker told a wonderful story of his first church in a little country town in New York. (My paraphrase) He shows up ready to preach, waits 20 minutes, until someone finally shows up. He tells the one person in attendance, what he wants to do, and the person says, "As a farmer, when I go to the pasture, to feed the cows, I feed them." The young preacher does the whole service, the hymns, prayers, the sermon, church announcements, and communion. After the "service" was over, the young preacher as he greets the one fellow as he’s leaving the church says, "So, how did I do?" The farmer says, you know when I go to the pasture, if only one cow shows up, I don’t dump a whole load on him."
