The More the Merrier

Two and a half years ago, we moved into our church facility. We had a hundred chairs to get upstairs. My husband, myself and two other people showed up to help. Can I say we were exhausted by the end of the day? In fact, there was one point I thought my husband was going to have a heart attack!

This morning our church moved to a new location. There were more than seventeen people who showed up. It was the smoothest move I have ever been a part of. Things were carried downstairs quickly...they were loaded on and off the truck with no difficulty. No one looked like they were having a heart attack....because there were so many of us to help!

We need each other. There is just no way of getting around that fact. Yes, it is true, we can do things on our own...we might even enjoy doing them on our own...but it is so much better doing things as a team.

  2. So true! And it's always heartening if "new" people show up to help, since oftentimes -- not only with churches, but other organizations - that the same people show up to do the work all the time.
