You'd think that a church committee meeting would be free of all the politics and procedures, processes and beaurecratic crap. Well, no. Went to my monthly meeting tonight and we got so hung up on the development of policies and procedures for various other committees that it became insane.
I'm like, this is church, right. Not business. Love one another no matter what? Well, we do love each other. Don't worry about that and we ended the meeting very positively but I mean COME ON!
The simplist things turned into nightmarish details. Someone wants to donate money to the church to buy new robes for the choir. They can't even do it because it goes against the "by-laws" and there is no place to record it in the budget. How god like is that?
We did figure it out after a while.
