I've transitioned from the North American Division pastors convention down to San Antonio for the General Conference session. And I thought I'd reflect on the 3 days in Austin with 3,000 other pastors by sharing a few quotes I wrote down in various sessions: (unfortunately, I have not always written down who gave the quotes :-/)
Christianity, without Christlikeness is one of the biggest dangers/poisons to the world. ~ Whitley Phipps
For I have called you by name. ~ Isaiah 43.1
Raise aspirations. Be courageous. No one out performs their aspirations.
Are you more committed to redemption and salvation. Or more committed to our church structure and pattern?
Catchy title on Revelation 12 and the Woman and the dragon - Beauty and the Beast!
Whatever God has asked you to be - he already is! ~ Whitley Phipps.
We have been called to do an impossible task. ~ Henry Wright
Only our God in heaven would come up with a plan for the broken to lead the broken to become unbroken. ~ Henry Wright
For most of us, ministry is the only way we get to be saved. ~ Henry Wright (and I think this is true for me)
(On using good management techniques in the church) Manage ministry yes. But let God manage you. ~ Henry Wright
Get your six shooter, load it up with Ellen White quotes and go on and start shootin'. ~ Said sarcastically by George Knight
Little knowledge leads to pride. Much knowledge leads to humility.
Deep praying. Do it. ~ Dwight Nelson
We like our prophets dead and buried rather than have them send us a letter, that way we can control what they say ~ George Knight.
