3MMM | Episode 4: Collaboration
The biblical stories are all crowded with divine collaboration and partnership among unlikely characters like Mary and Joseph, Elizabeth and Zachariah, and innkeepers and shepherds, as well as messengers with holy ideas and surprisingly sacred announcements.
God’s collaboration with creation and especially with humanity, however, can go amiss. And in ministry we know it oh so well… when we start planning special holy-day services, depend on people for a great variety of tasks, or gather with families in crisis and grief. Then collaboration can seem anything but obvious. Missed communications, misunderstood meanings, a plethora of differing expectations can fill the air, making ministry seem nearly impossible.
