I received a delivery of batteries today at church for our Tech area. As I watched them get carried down the hall to our Media Coordinators office, it occurred to me that even the most tiny detail if overlooked can destroy our weekend and MidWeek services.
One battery left out of a mic and the message isn't heard! We have had many small errors over the years, one phone call not made, one light left on, one light left off, one stool not in place, one music transition not played, one word forgotten, one instrument not tuned, one cell phone not muted, one forgotten note, one video not played... one+one+one+one+one+one...details
de·tail (dĭ-tāl', dē'tāl') Particulars considered individually and in relation to a whole: careful attention to detail.
Particulars considered individually... each detail important alone... and in relation to a whole... and finally all the little details come together to create a whole.
You take all the individual details in each service, add God's people and mere details become the whole!
