Today we had practice for the monk sketch we are performing on Thursday evening and Sunday morning for Candeo’s “Come and Worship” Christmas production. It should be pretty epic. “As epic as my beard?,” you ask unprompted. “Yes!,” I say, “Yes a thousand times.”
We wear shorts while practicing as it is quite physically
intense and we get our heart-rates up.
However, since we are a mobile church, when all the fun and games are
over, someone has to pack and load up everything. It is awesome to see so many people throwing
themselves all in to help. Yes, it was
cold and yes it was Sunday afternoon and yes, I’m guessing everyone would have
rather have left an hour earlier to be home under a blanket relaxing or
But this is a church plant and we are seeing a rich
harvest from our young plant. It’s worth
it. It still costs something, but not so
much that you look back and wish you had withheld anything. If anything, it makes you look back and
wonder going forward if you can find more to do.
It’s a strange phenomenon this going all in.
