A bit late this week due to a technical difficulty but as the old adage goes, better late than never. Here are my thoughts from week #3 of the Rubber Bands series.
Worship = Wow! Our band is always incredible but there was something special about Sunday. I also know I wasn’t the only one who felt this way. I listened to a person, who doesn’t have a background in church, say Monday that he’d never felt what he felt Sunday during worship. Wow!
Rubber bands hit the screen. In the spirit of the upcoming holiday season, we talked about the tension we often feel with some of The People Around The Table. In order to relieve some of the tension, we participated in a corporate rubber band flick. The screen was our family & we flicked them! Lot’s of smiles all around on this one 🙂
Change is Good. We mixed the order of the service up Sunday with the hopes of changing some things permanently. In retrospect, I realized how blessed I am not to have a church & a team that argues over simple change. We’ve got a team that is more concerned with what will work best than what they like & I couldn’t be more thankful for that.
EVERYONE needs feedback! We are constantly assessing our feedback process at CP because feedback makes us better. Feedback needs to come from our leaders, our volunteers & those who are simply attending. Different perspectives are important, valuable & help us to see what we cannot see by ourselves.
A healthy church has healthy people. The point of this series has been to broaden & enhance our perspective on what the Bible tells us about navigating the often tense situations caused by relationships. Relationships matter & if we want healthy churches, we have to create a culture of healthy people that will create healthy families.
