God Space

I am re-reading Doug Pollack’s book, “God Space.” I completely resonate with his heart to connect with and build bridges into the lives of those who are not-yet-Christ-followers. Like me, he seems to want to love people where they are, and create “God Space” by creating a relational environment that  is a safe place for people to share their views without being judged. People matter to God, so it seems I should do everything I can to show that people matter to me.

Having said that, I totally missed an opportunity today. I hate it when I am so uninterested in the people God puts in my path that I view them as there to serve me. In this case, the person really was there to serve me, but I failed to truly acknowledge them and show that they mattered to me and to God. How hard should it be for me to take 30 seconds and introduce myself and at least learn their name? I blew it. Turns out the guy (who happens to run a cleaning service) is also a pastor as well. Hopefully I’ve learned a lesson.
