Space & Aspirations
Good news, and possible logistical road blocks
9/23: EM: 11:15 am:
Another team member is going to meet you at New Hope tonight with checks at to fill out the paperwork to go on your team.
KM: 12:16 pm: So I have another person? That makes 6 coming home in the van….
EM: 12:17 pm: Yup
KM: to JK: We have a total of 9 going on the trip, 3 cars….
JK: I'm a pretty good packer... we'll squish in somehow.
I want my team to feel the way I do after an Adrian Symphony concert. I want them to notice the details, and appreciate them, but I don’t want them to worry about how they got there.
That’s how I want people to feel about my missionary team. I want them to be blind to the inner workings, the laborious details, the hours of planning that has placed them where they are. I want them to be free of being in charge. And there is a real freedom in being a follower; without the distractions of administration, there is more likely space for an infiltration of GOD’s message.
Whoa. Could I be obsessed with administration in order to fill my head with details and leave little space for greater things?
