Yesterday our church celebrated “baptism Sunday”. 32 members of our church family were baptized, some for the first time and others as a re-dedication.
Baptism Sunday, which happens in our particular church only once a year or every other year, is such an inspirational day for me personally. It’s exciting to see the joy on people’s faces when they come up out of the water and to feel the hope that is rising in the community as the baptisms take place.
I am always struck by the communal nature of the event. While I didn’t get baptized yesterday, I felt my faith increase by being a witness to baptisms. There is a ripple effect that happens on days like these.
And as I went home yesterday afternoon, I couldn’t help but ponder the connection between the experience of getting organized and the experience of baptism.
Both require a decision, a commitment. Both involve an “old way” and a “new way”. Both have a ripple effect that touches not just the person getting organized or baptized but also the people around them. And both require “maintenance” and little re-commitments every day to stay the course.
I often share with clients and prospective clients that they will sense a shift in their household when they make a decision to get organized. I encourage them to focus on organizing their OWN things and their own problem areas, without getting too caught up in their family members’ disorganization.
I explain to them that through the process of them becoming more organized, something will be released into the atmosphere of their household. Other family members will become inquisitive and often inspired to get organized themselves. It really can be contagious. The house feels lighter and people feel more hopeful.
At Aloha Organizers, we believe that while our commodity is “organizing services”, our product is HOPE.
- We provide hope to people who are drowning in clutter
- We provide hope to people who don’t know where to start
- We provide hope to people who think that being organized is not possible for them
- We provide hope to people who may not be totally disorganized but who sense there’s something more available to them
Ultimately, we help people get organized so they can do what they are born to do…
