It was another reminder to me that part of our job as worship leaders is to care for the people that work with us. It was not just a party, it was another chance for our lives to intersect without song. And it is unashamedly fun. A team that has fun together is much more effective.
This year we themed the party after the movie Elf (starring Will Farrell). It was over the top. Family pictures in our frames were replaced with pictures of Buddy and his friends. A giant arctic puffin greeted the team. Santa even showed up and offered some presents like an Etch-a-Sketch, candy canes, candy corns, and of course, syrup. Note: it wasn’t the real Santa. He was an imposter. He sat on a throne of lies and smelled like beef and cheese. Click here for pictures.
One of our team members, Jennie Rich, showed up with her favorite desert: pop tarts, marshmallows, syrup, m&m’s, candy corn, and spaghetti. Amber decided to take a bite and wash it down. Yea, sometimes it gets weird.
