It's good to know that TF isn't the only church that occasionally has people arrive late to the nursery or to set-up crew. Check out this blog entry from a church planter in DC, link.
Really good post, Ben. Sometimes what I'm thinking can best be articulated by another planter. But I do want to encourage everyone to continually strive toward excellence in everything we do as a church. We're still intentional in focusing the few, but most important ministries, so as to not spread ourselves too thin.
