The truth is we have done a lot of good; but made many mistakes which have caused unnecessary damage. I celebrate the former and grieve over the latter. When we err there are thousands who are ready to think on their own, overlook, and keep moving forward with us. Others feel too beaten down and they walk away.
We (Memorial and Garnett) have taken strong negative shots from every year we have put on the workshop. It is evidently not possible to please a certain core group. However, we must continue to exert faith and works hoping to inspire and re-inspire more to join us in the great cause of winning souls to the Lamb.
Bottom line: while the workshop is 33 years old, it has much room for improvement. We have only just begun.
So talk to me. Tell me what you need from us.
- What would help you return to the workshop if you are one who left?
- What would help regarding publicity?
- What can be done to get congregations on board?
- What other possibilities do you see which would build a stronger workshop?
While we've been at this a long time, we remain in kindergarten in wisdom, creativity, etc. Think with me. If you were directing the workshop, what would you do to make it better?
