tilt



good to see doug back in action his father passed away a couple of weeks ago...lessons learned and passed on...good vibe, great message and an encouragement to all...

kindness to go went well over 200 bags went with vineyard people out to different places...stories will be coming in...i took two bags to red lobster for a team meeting...the waitress commented...'wow, i never get presents...thanks!'...fun, easy and shares the value of outward focus in a practical meaningful way to the recipient...and to the vineyard gathered

Caribou coffee had their first free coffee customer purchase...I went in to meet a couple of rambo evangelist type people who are just beginning to be wowed by the simple acts of kindness approach...we had a good meeting...they have a passion for the biker community and have been reaching out

I walk to counter and say, 'I'll purchase a x$ gift card please'...i receive card and hand back and say, 'I'll pay for the next people's coffee until the card runs out'...the girl nods ok. I say, 'i'll be sitting over there with the bald guy'...as I sit down and begin to have a talk i notice people going to counter, paying for coffee...confused I go to counter and ask, 'what's up i want to pay for eveyones coffee?' confused girl commented...'i thought you just wanted to pay for the bald guys coffee only...he must drink a lot of coffee'...I clarify and say, 'nope everyone is to receive a free drink'..she says 'wow'...manager comes over...'what are you doing?'...'I'm doing good today and purchasing people's coffee' ... manager asks, 'what are you going to say to the people who thank you?'...i say, 'you are welcome...we are just doing good today'...she is happy...and smiles and walks away...

during the hour two Chinese guys are stunned one throws a fiver to me...i toss back and say, 'it's on us'... he says, 'where is the camera?', several other people are stunned, over whelmed etc...one lady asks, 'who are you guys?'... i comment, 'we are from the vineyard down the street just doing good today'...she responds, 'o you're that pretty good church'...I laugh and comment, 'yep that's us'...an interesting time...

today i go in for coffee, and the staff were buzzing about the event...they loved the looks on people's faces...Steve Sjogren calls it the tilt with head tilted sidways and eyes rolling from one side to another...
