The ‘wow’ of church

The guy with the clipboard was trying to get passersby to donate to the nature group he represented. He was all sweet talk and pictures of cute baby seals and convincing arguments about why even $5.00 could make a difference. When I approached, though, he didn’t give me the hard sell. Instead, he grinned and said, “I bet you’re already a donor.”

He was right. I was. We bumped fists and shared a moment gushing about how much we loved the organization and why. As I left, he made his hands into a heart shape in a show of thanks and fellow-nature-lover love.
