I watched the Crossroads services this morning. It made me realize again how much I love being there!
I marveled as I watched all the amazing praise team members, the beautiful voices and the hearts for the Lord that I personally know. So many hours go into preparing well each week. As I watched I thanked the Lord for our ministry and that I get to be part of it.
But one of the things I'll never take for granted is all the behind the scenes work that it also takes to create even one service. It takes so many hours of preparation and creative work.
The beautiful set design by Arnie was breath taking! I wasn't there, but assume our audio guy Eric probably helped hang everything and do the work it took to get it ready for the weekend with Arnie.
It's easy to just spend money to buy things for set design - instead we take pride in creatively solving problems and making new things out of old and beauty out of repurposed things others would consider useless. It's a challenge we love to solve! Go tech and creative teams!
Next I watched as the graphics that Eric our Arts Director created to support Pastor Dave's new teaching series came across the scene. Beautiful and thought provoking were the words that came to mind.
Just as I'm proud of all the amazing up-front teams, I'm also very thankful and proud of the behind-the-scene hidden teams!!
Our creative process proves again how God has gifted each person with unique talents that when used in unity bring beautiful glory to God the creator!
