When traveling across a desert, it's good to have a horse

Some people thrive on organization. Their lives are virtually wrapped in constant meetings, busy phones, full schedules. But others carry quite a different feeling about organization and how, or even if, it should fit into their lives. They tend to emphasize an independent attitude and feel a certain encroachment or infringement when they are drawn into organization.

Both of these views call for some very honest thought when it comes to church organization. The person whose life is built primarily on how he relates to others may need to step back and learn a little more about the value of independence. The individual who shies away from the responsibilities and obligations of organization may want to give further thought to what it means to be more unselfish and just how he can help his fellowman more effectively through a unified approach to solving problems.
