Church Lesson From Disney

- - Uncategorized

I just got home from our family vacation to Disneyland. It was my daughter’s first time… and she had a blast.

We spent 3 days bouncing back and forth between Disneyland and California Adventure. We went to Aladdin (the musical) and had breakfast with the Disney princesses (and now I feel so very manly telling you all this).

Here’s something I noticed about the Disney characters who were roaming around the park: they all had a permanent smile… one expression – happy.

I think this is a good lesson for church leaders and volunteers from Disney: since we represent the church (a place of hope, forgiveness, acceptance, love, grace and second chances), we should have a permanent smiles on our faces!

Disney describes themselves as “the happiest place on earth.”

How would we (the church) like to be described?

The church is the most “___________________” place on earth…

I’m thinking the words “joyful, exciting, hopeful, vibrant and alive” are pretty good.

Taking a lesson from Disney: our facial expressions need to match our self-description!

I am a husband, father, pastor, leader & reader. I love God, love people & love life.
