Many hands make light work. John Heywood, English playwright and poet, 1497-1580
You may have heard me quote this in the past in describing the positive outcome that team work produces in the ministry and how we couldn’t do all that we do without your ‘hands and feet’, prayers and support. Here’s another interpretation of ‘many hands…’ and feet. I bought a new pair of runners in readiness for our Walk the Walk on September 29th. Little did I realize that I’d be donning my new treads and frantically running from an eight-legged hairy creature that took up residency in my house without asking my permission. Talk about creeping me out! Where was my team when I needed their help in battling this intruder? “A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” (Ecclesiastes 4:1) I’m assembling a team to run and/or walk with me at the Surrey Marathon. We’re doing so to raise funds and awareness for NightShift and the people we serve. I wonder, should I recruit ‘Spidey Man’ to join our efforts? He just might give us an edge on the competition!
