Lending Workers to Other Companies

#6 on the Wall Street Journal’s creative ways to avoid layoffs during a recession (here’s the link to the article) describes Rhino Foods of Vermont-they make Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream better…trust me–sending their employees over to a fellow company who was experiencing a seasonal rush. So companies are sharing employees (even if an invoice comes later)! This is huge for privatized companies with trade secrets….this isn’t typical….this emerged out of necessity and innovation. AND BOTH companies won!

I wonder if churches will ever take this leap–sharing of staff, key leaders, workers, resources. Will we ever get to a point where we are Kingdom minded and not just Church minded. Can we stop competing with each other and learn how to complement each other. I’ve had this discussion several times over the past few months. I’m not sure where it’s going, but it keeps coming up…I’ll keep you in the loop as it progresses.
