One thing that frustrates me about church is when people grudgingly take on tasks.
I don’t know, for me its more fun to be involved and DO things, don’t you want to be a part of whatever is happening?
This week I got the chance to talk to a wonderful lady. Together we planned an arts project in 2 parts: 1 a Family Friendly Art Show 2. A Kids Theater Program (that is very accessible monetarily and hopefully schedulewise).
It was a good hour.
Don’t get me wrong, there will be prep involved, but mostly it just took a spark, an idea.
There will be setup and hosting and taking down.
There will be more planning for part 2
But the way I look at it; it will be LOADS of fun, as most ministry is.
So I’m confused…..do we really begrudge the time & energy that is spent in ministry….or are we just afraid that we are going to have to do it alone!
And for me it took a partnership. So often people don’t want to lead in the church, because they feel like they have to do it alone.
Good News! We don’t have to. God is with us, we are never alone, and God sent us partners! From the gecko, God realized that we work better in Tandem.
