Your Letter Does Make a Difference
Why? 1) I'm convinced that "shining" is a lot more responsible than just "whining." It's healthier too!
2) Letter-writers become more informed, more alert, and more eager to pass the word along in other venues too.
and 3) Letters actually work!
These are the reasons that one of Vital Signs Ministries' first activities (way back in 1983) was the beginning of P.A.L. Nights, regularly scheduled meetings where we would spend a short time of prayer together and then, while we kept the coffee and tea hot, we wrote letters.
Vital Signs carries on this tradition to this day. And we've stimulated individual churches and Sunday School classes to join in the fun. Why? Because letters work.
But don't just take my word for it. Give a listen to this interesting 5-minute lecture by business entrepreneur and politician Omar Ahmad. If you find it motivational -- and you will -- then print off this helpful letter-writing primer and get started making a difference.
