Is there a difference between

Is there a difference between prepared and performance?
After our service this Sunday, the church leaders and I had a meeting and a conversation about how the church service is put together. Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been working on making the service flow better, little thing like making sure people know when they’re supposed to do what. Making sure we start on time and end on time? little things. Anyway, someone brought up the question “are we just making things slick?”. I responded by saying there is a difference between being prepared and putting on a performance? but I’ve been wondering over the last 24 hours if that’s true. Is it? I’m not totally sure. We want our services to be authentic expressions of community even in a corporate setting. So the question is: Does preparing and striving to do things well in a service counterproductive to the notion of authenticity? That’s honestly not a rhetorical question. I’d like to hear your thoughts.
