There were many things that factor into this project not going the way we wanted and originally planned. Lack of time was a major part of this, but I think the most significant reason why this project did not succeed, on my part, was that I wasn’t even close to majority of the people there. I had my small group of friends that I stuck to whenever there was an event.
How could I possibly think that I would be able to improve the community of the church without first becoming more involved and meeting more people in the community myself first? Well through the process, I ended up going to more church events than I usually would, talked to new people, generally kept a positive attitude, and basically improved myself.
Even though this project was somewhat of a failure in that it did not accomplish the goal that was set at hand, it was a success for me on a personal level which, I think, is where I needed to start with before I even thought about improving the church environment. Now that I have improved myself, maybe I can accomplish what we originally wanted to just for fun.
