Do you play on purpose with people you work with?

We do.

Members of our advancement team met in Minneapolis for training recently and decided it was time to play Whirlyball together. More than just having a wild and wacky time together, something happens to our team when we play on purpose. It’s like the process of getting to know each other is accelerated and deepened by a couple hours of pure fun. Seems like a worthy investment of our time.

Or should I say a “whirly investment?”

I’ve included a video here so you can see what it’s like. Check it out.

I must admit it was a lot of fun. Getting paid to play. What a concept! Makes our work more efficient, and more fun too!

There’s a lot to love about what I do. The chance to share the love of God with others through radio is the big draw of course. I also work with a team that sees the value of, at least occasionally, playing together.  By doing this, we build teamwork. (I think they call it “Esprit De Corps.”) This feeling of togetherness serves us well as we do our jobs to the glory of God.

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Cor. 10:31

Playing whirlyball to the glory of God. That’s something I can get into. (It’s a tough job I have, but someone’s got to do it.)

Something to think about.
