The Personnel Committee is pleased to report that the Annual Staff Recognition Dinner was well attended by staff and members from the session, we enjoyed a great meal and enjoyed each other’s company. It was nice to just sit around and talk, no specific topic or reason for the conversation, just sitting and talking with one another. Something that we just don’t do enough of these days.
The Committee will be looking for feedback on the staff in the coming month or two so that we can complete the annual staff review. This is an opportunity for acknowledging things that is done well, and an opportunity to provide constructive feedback to help our church grow and move forward. If anyone would like to share any feedback on the staff, please let me know. I will formerly announce the start date for the review but I am always looking for feedback.
I happened across the following quote the other day, and it really struck me as being so true.
“Our culture has accepted two huge lies. The first is that if you disagree with someone’s lifestyle, you must fear or hate them. The second is that to love someone means you agree with everything they believe or do. Both are nonsense. You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate.”
–Dave Chappelle
