Start with Hello

Publisher’s Note


When you think of ministering- where does your mind go? Leading a Bible study, visiting the sick, taking a mission trip? All very good and important things but have you pondered how a simple “hello” at the office or anywhere can minister to someone?

The Leader of Prevention and Wellness Efforts for Google, Dr. Lauren Whitt, shared her personal testimony at a recent Birmingham area Women Business Leaders event. Near the close of her message, Whitt asked the business women in the room a question and gave a very insightful answer.

“Want to minister in the work place?

Start with hello.”

Whitt shared how so many of us are longing to be seen, recognized, valued in a world where our attention so often seems to be on some type of technical device. I walked away with new insight into how a simple “Hello,” can be a powerful way to start a conversation, let someone know you care, and share God’s Love with someone who desperately needs it.

Have a passion for sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ?

I encourage you to- Start with Hello!
