There is an interesting idea in the sports world that could be beneficial for the church to implement.  The idea is watching game film.  Every day can be considered “game day” in the business world, so why is this kind of analysis so less common?  When was the last time your church or any church looked at another church?  This would not be in order to compete against them like it is in the church world, but rather to work together, to share “best practices.”  Churches do not really need competitive advantage unless they think they are competing against each other, which is not the premise of churches.  Just ask yourself, “What insights might our church be missing out on because we are not asking the right questions or observing those who do it best?”  Churches should be working just as hard to better themselves just as sports teams do.
