Spent the day taking care of business with the Living Church Foundation board. What a dynamic and effective ministry this is. I am so proud and honored to be part of it. In the evening, we gathered at the home of one of our members for a “friendraiser”–a term-of-art in the fundraising world to denote to which potential donors are invited and the “case” is made, but there’s no “ask.” TLC is rolling out an endowment campaign, and this was part of the “soft” launch. My assessment is that it went very well.
