Look Who’s Calling…

October 10, 2011

I love caller ID. I look at the phone and it tells me who is calling (or at least where the call is coming from) before I even pick up the phone.

To be honest, I often don’t pick up the phone. Out of area prefixes, unknown name, unavailable, and 800 numbers make me wary. Way too many telemarketing calls, even at church. I figure I can save them and me a lot of time.

But what about the calls where I recognize the name or number? I have a brief reaction to who is calling and what might be the nature of their call. Most of the time, I am delighted to receive a call from someone I know. Occasionally, I don’t have such a positive reaction.

I wonder what people think when they see ‘Faith Community Church’ or ‘Phil Assink’ on their caller ID. Is this a welcome call or a dreaded call? Are they fearful of what will be asked of them or eager to talk to a friend?

I can’t control people’s reaction to my name on their caller ID. All I can do is be the best friend I know how so when my name shows up, they’ll hit ‘answer’ and not ‘ignore’.

 How do you think people react to your name showing up on their phone?
