Senior Pastor's Message

 

Winning Takes Team Work

 

 

Some missionaries in the Philippines set up a croquet game in their front yard.  Several of their Agta Negrito neighbors became interested and were invited to play.  The missionaries explained the game and gave each player a mallet and a ball.  As the game progressed, so did the opportunity for one of the players to take advantage of another by knocking that person’s ball out of the court.  When the missionary explained the procedure was to help a player win, the guests seemed dumbfounded.  Competition is generally ruled out in hunting and gathering societies, where people survive not by competing but by sharing equally in every activity.

  The game continued, but no  one followed the missionaries advice.  In fact, in tight spots with other players, they advised one another and encouraged one another, and helped one another.  The missionaries were exasperated!  And finally, when the last wicket was played, the “team” shouted happily, “We won!  We won!

  That is how the Church, the body of Christ should be.  We’re a team and when we work together ~ we all win!
