Seth Godin recently pointed out that there is a huge difference between making something and meeting something. We organize and prioritize things differently if we were, say, to be meeting a train over and against making a train. Working in the church can often end up in days of endless meetings. Meetings are necessary but they invite hurried boredom, frustration and downright rudeness (for the chronically late) because more often than not creatives and producers on your staff would rather be out DOING something than sitting in a room talking ABOUT doing something.
I wonder if we might not invite each other into "makings" where the staff team is invited into a relationship where they are making something not meeting about something. What kind of inspiration would come from that? How many silos might get torn down when different areas of your church stop defending their turf and start making something new and exciting?
