Last Sunday, before I preached at the grand opening of Cornerstone Centre near Toronto, a woman approached me in the lobby. She said, "I used to go to a church based community centre in Toronto - my daughter and I loved it - we shared in many activities there. But that church never grew. Why not?" I asked, "Did you ever attend a service there?" "No." "Did anyone ever invite you?" "No." "Did you get to know many of the church members?" "I don't know if the people I met were members or not - no one ever talked about the church."
