Herman Ostry’s barn was under water because of a nearby creek. The Nebraska farmer invited a few friends to a barn raising. But it was not a typical barn rising (I said raising). They didn’t build a new barn. No, Mr. Ostry needed to move his entire 17,000 pound barn to a new foundation more than 143 feet away. His son Mike devised a system of hundreds of handles welded onto the inside and the outside of the barn. After one practice lift, 344 volunteers slowly walked the barn up a slight incline, each supporting less than 50 pounds. In just 3 minutes, the barn was on its new foundation.

The body of Christ can accomplish great things when we work together.
