Since coming on Staff at Fellowship Memphis I have been collecting quotes that i have heard at meetings, church, in a book. I was cleaning my desk and found them all written on post-its… so here they are, sorry if i can’t remember where they came from:
” What makes a great experience for someone isn’t just a few major decisions but a million small ones.” -referring to the atmosphere we create for our visitors at church.
“The World rushes on…”
“The axe can not boast of the trees it has cut down. It could do nothing without the woodsman, he made it, sharpened it, he used it. The moment he throws it aside, it becomes only old iron.”
“Be ruthless with time, be gracious with people.”
“Movements aren’t started by movements they are started by people.”
“One of the great dangers of leadership is this: We stop doing ministry “out of imagination” and we start doing ministry “out of memory”. We learn how and forget why. We stop creating the future and start repeating the past.”
