Four Places We Stand and Why Direction Matters
A story was told of a grand piano needing to be moved in a German church many years ago. The community of church members were not skilled professional movers, only volunteers working together. Because of the size of the piano, the job required a carefully orchestrated plan using their strength and coordination. They tried several different techniques, but each resulted in making the piano unstable and it remained immovable.
As they stood around the piano trying to determine the next tactic, one man suggested they stand close together and then lift where they stood.
The solution seemed too simple to work, but they gave it a try, and to their astonishment they found success! The profound truth to their quandary was to lift where they stood.
