‘Come a little closer.’ There have been many times that, as a speaker, I have said to people: ‘please come closer’. Filling up the venue from the back, suits our desire to be anonymous, to not get too close, to be able to get away quickly, not to be picked out or picked on, I do it myself, we arrive at church early to get the back seat.

The same is true for us, there are many who care for ICS, are curious or interested about the ministry, the people, or the places we work in, but who are sitting at the back of the room. From there you are not seeing or hearing as much as you might. To you we say: 'Move a little further forward and become more visible to us. Allow us to communicate with you better.'

If you get ICS News passed on from someone else, then sign up, we will deliver it by mail or email. If you get ICS News but not the monthly update, come a little closer and sign up to receive this as well. You may follow us on Facebook or Instagram. You may visit our website regularly. To you I say this summer, ‘come closer’. We delight to know better those who are interested in or support ICS, it helps us get a better idea who we are speaking with, this is a conversation we enjoy.

We look forward to you coming a little closer with us.

Richard Bromley, ICS Mission Director
