Today is my birthday (yes, I also know it’s the church’s birthday — Pentecost). So, in the spirit of my birthday I’d like to point out the ways to missional on a birthday found over at The Missio Stream, a Tumblr Blog.
1. Respond to Every Happy Birthday Comment on Facebook — However you work it, your birthday is a great opportunity to reach out to those who have reached out to you, even if it is a simple little note.
2. Find Every Excuse to Celebrate — Birthdays may not be your thing, but being missional is all about finding excuses to connect with those who appreciate and listen to you.
3. Spend Time with Those Closest to You — [B]eing missional is all about finding excuses to connect with those in your circles of influence who appreciate and listen to you. Give them some time of your special day.
I’d add to it that you’re birthday can be a great way to connect with everyone you meet. It gives you a starting point to a conversation and a sharing of relationship
