Jar #64 – Team Building

Yesterday morning, I got up at 6:30am to get some breakfast going before I left for McDonald’s Greenbelt. What’s so special about that place? That morning, it became the nexus for the Feast Makati Legaspi Servants team building exercises. Since the Feast Makati is held weekly and thus needs to run as a finely-oiled machine, the exercises helped a lot in breaking the ice especially for newcomers like me.

The Feast Makati Legaspi has been around for several years now, and it’s usually Hazel who gets asked to sing once a month with the Music Ministry. Since Hazel got pregnant, her participation in the Feast has been reduced greatly. But recently, since I decided I wanted to serve in the Feast, it meant I also should be able to work with the other servants.

The day started with a breakfast or either hotcakes, the sausage with scrambled eggs, or the longaniza. I opted for the sausage as I wasn’t eager for the taste of garlic from the longaniza.

The activities ranged from going around asking people what they have in common with you, to an actual Amazing Race that took us around Legaspi Market and its environs, to discussing how the lessons from the race could be applied to serving in the Feast. It was capped off with each servant going around giving either a hug, a high-five, or a handshake with other servants, depending on how well they interacted and how they want to interact in the future. A chicken lunch was then served before everyone went their separate ways.

We also heard that an earthquake struck a couple of places in the Visayas so we all said a brief prayer for them before we continued. It was capped off with each servant going around giving either a hug, a high-five, or a handshake with other servants, depending on how well they interacted and how they want to interact in the future. A chicken lunch was then served before everyone went their separate ways.

In the end, not only were walls torn down, everyone present had a better understanding of what it meant to serve in the community according to their abilities. This, as a result, made them more capable of serving God.
