As I ride the elevator up and down in the office building where our Indiana Conference Service Center is located on the north side of Indianapolis, I often ride with persons from the other offices in our building. My style is to greet them, engage in brief conversation, and to try to be friendly. I always think it is important for "church people" like me to display such friendliness to others, because we church people have a bad reputation in our culture of being cold, judgmental and concerned about ourselves.--More--
