I used to joke around when we first got into ministry saying I was going to write a book, “If you feed them, they will come.” (Hear that in James Earl Jones voice please, yes it is a reference to Field of Dreams for those who still know what that is.) There is something about food that draws people in and provides a place to connect but dessert, especially cookies, for whatever reason turns us all into little kids. We are freer and ready to talk about stuff. Cookies earn trust. I did not do this as a ten step plan to win friends and influence others. It just happened. I am thankful for it being something so simple.
How many times do I try to make things far more complicated than a cookie? Usually people just want someone to show they care in a simple way. A note, an invite for a coffee or tea, some fresh baked cookies, a few minute conversation and hug, it really is that simple. People want to be seen and loved. They want someone to notice them and a little chocolate never hurts to throw in the mix.
