- crews scheduled for both set-up and tear-down
- coffee and food handled in ways that comply with health laws
- enough supplies
That’s it. But somewhere between our meeting and publishing The Reminders, I blew those bullets up into a three-page wish dream.
I really would love for Mosaic to have someone carefully managing all the ways we welcome and take care of the people who come to our building – someone who can commit to that work for a couple of years and deeply influence our church and the way we serve. But the fact is, that’s not what we actually need right now. I don’t apologize for dreaming big, but when I took a dream and made it policy, I broke at least a half-dozen leadership and relational principles. And I should have known better.
So that’s what I apologize for. I’m sorry for jumping the gun with an over-ambitious plan. I’ll work hard to avoid doing that again. And I’m sorry for not asking for what we really need: a person (or a pair) who can take on Amanda’s three bullet points and commit to them for an extended time.
A number of people have offered to help with pieces of the work. I truly appreciate those offers, and it kills me not to be able to say yes. But doing that would put Amanda right back in the coordinator role, and I can’t let her do that. So cafe is on hold until a coordinator is found. If that’s you, and you’re ready, please talk to Amanda or me.
