Lessons from a snowman

I learned a lot about teamwork as a bunch of young adults decided to grace the front of our church with a snowman last week.

First of all, everyone has to come together. Staying in a warm cozy home sending us 'moral support' - although nice sentiments, they really don't help get the job done.

Secondly, while it was fairly cold outside, those who were working on the task never gave a thought to the temperature. Only those on the sidelines felt the chill of the day.

Thirdly, if those working on the snowman had stopped the project to focus on warming up those on the sidelines - ultimately, they would also become cold AND the project would never be completed!

And finally, when we all worked together, the job was able to be completed, AND everyone had a blast getting it done!

Good job, guys! Can't wait until our next snowfall!!!
