Kalamazoo MI- Yesterday I saw a great demonstration about the power of team work. No, we were not working on a complex real estate transaction today. Today we were supporting our church and helping get ready to host a Superbowl party. We were creating a way to show the game using our projection and audio system. It was so interesting how the details came together. The planning started weeks ago. And as the time got closer, plans a, b, and c fell apart. Today we were up to plan d and there were several challenges. We needed to mount an antenna on a 2nd story roof, fish the cable down the 2 stories to the projector, connect the digital converter and then connect it to the projector so we can display the picture on our large screen and bring the audio into the sound system. We often operate by volunteers at church and today we had more awesome professionals volunteering. John Vroegop has been a long time member of Immanuel….in fact…he and Claire are lifetime members. They were present from the very beginning. Today John was on the roof of the 2nd story mounting an antenna. John is an expert with antennas — he runs a TV repair and antenna business. He brought down the cable and then Jason Veenstra took off from our real estate office and put on his “tech guy” hat. Jason was one of the tech guys at Calvin College and Trinity Colleges while he was a student and so he brought in the technical expertise to finish the project…successfully! There are others who are working on the food and invitations, others working on the games for those who don’t want to watch football and others who will set up and clean up.
The “body” analogy was clearly demonstrated today. None of us could have gotten the project done alone. Each had their own area of expertise….and together…we were successful. It was encouraging and inspiring!
Thanks John, Eric and Lorilee Russell, Jason and all the others who are working hard to make it possible for all of us to have fun watching the game together. We really appreciate you!
ANYONE want to join us at the game? You are welcome!
