Expect Small Tips with Gospel Tracts

Here’s the quote of the day, from Thom Rainer, president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s LifeWay Christian Resources, recounting the words of a Houston restaurant server as the SBC has its annual convention in Houston this week:

“I told my fellow employees at the restaurant to get ready for small tips, lots of gospel tracts to go with the cheap tips, and plenty of people ordering desserts.”

I would hope that’s not the case.

I have been to conferences where before the lunch break, attendees have been asked to ‘tip generously’ so that the reputation of the host church is positive.

That really shouldn’t have to be said.

You would think that waitresses would be the most churched profession in the country.

They’ve at least helped make Jack Chick a millionaire.

So… are you a cheap tipper?

My friend, Ed Stetzer is not.  He leaves a nice tip, and a full copy of his book “Planting Missional Churches” for every waitress.

So… to all my friends in Houston this week… tip well.  And tip often.

:)
