The following is a guest blog by Rich Kirkpatrick, Worship Pastor at Sunridge Community Church – Temecula, CA

Art by committee comes out rather ugly, but art by collaboration shines.

One of the biggest frustrations in any creative endeavor is dealing with committee-driven process. This is not the same as collaboration. Its one thing to sit in a group that nit picks rather than team together to create. Let me contrast the two.

Committee vs. Collaboration

  • policy / results
  • opinions / ownership
  • tinkering / crafting
  • power / process
  • beige / colorful
  • safe / risky
  • boring / fun
  • defused /  potent
  • status quo / fluid

Let me know what you think about the differences here. Are these true to your experience?
