Standing in your church foyer; you notice some familiar faces. Wow! You suddenly realize it’s been quite a while since you’ve seen that young family here. You wonder what caused them to be away for so long? No matter the reason—it’s great to see them again. Could you make a difference today? Will you welcome them? What will you say?
