Pulling 3,000 Pounds

It takes teamwork to make the dream work.

Have you ever watched one of your services after the fact? You should, for post-production evaluation. As I was watching one of our live stream services, I had this thought. I began counting all the people that it took to pull off the service. I also began counting the hours each person contributed in preparation through rehearsals, meetings, email communication, etc.

For just that 1-hour service, there were thousands and thousands of hours of preparation with hundreds of people who made this little moment happen right here. There were volunteers. There was staff. There was lyric video, pro presenter, audio, light-programing, track prep, rehearsals, choir…it goes on and on.

What am I saying? Here’s the takeaway: by working together we have an exponential potential for the phenomenal. I’ve heard one horse can pull 700lbs by itself, but when two horses come together they can pull 3000lbs. I’m not sure how true that is, but it sure sounds good. Teamwork makes the dream work… #TEAMWORK
