having thoughts tonight about team. what is a team, what does it mean to be a part of one, how can ours be a really great one??? thinking about when we first met Darrin and Julie and how we presented our very best selves. the way we wanted to be, the way we wanted others to see us. was that who we really were though? now that we are here I can look back and see who we thought we were was just an image of who we thought we should be. living in a community of grace, with people we are learning to trust, and (dare I day it?) learning to love, we are getting a glimpse of who we really want to be. learning, slowly, to see ourselves in some tiny way the way God sees us. i like that a lot better than anything i can come up with on my own. i don't know much about leadership styles and models of this and that, or really about anything overly smarty pantsish at all, but i know that whatever is going on here is a good thing, and i am thankful to be a part of it.
