Create Margin for those around you

An important step in the process of planning anything, an event, worship experience, or meeting, is to think about how each participant will interact with what you are planning. You the planner can create margin for those around you by taking into account their experience. 

What are some examples of thinking about the participant to create margin?

  1. Think about how many steps it will take to be included in your event. 
  2. Consider how much pre-knowledge a participant will need to have in order to understand what’s going on. 

If you can reduce the number of steps and the amount of pre-knowledge needed to participate in anything, you have created margin for them, reduced anxiety, and opened a door to engage them in a new way.
