That's quotable

I'm re-reading Good to Great by Jim Collins. It really is an amazing book. This quote is worth posting, especially in light of where we are as a church plant: If people join the bus primarily because of where it is going, what happens if you get ten miles down the road and you need to change direction? You've got a problem. But if people are on the bus because of who else is on the bus, then it's much easier to change direction: "Hey, I got on this bus because of who else is on it; if we need to change direction to be more successful, fine with me...."

I think this speaks to the church's need to love and respect one another as family.

He goes on to say this: The right people don't need to be tightly managed or fired up; they will be self-motivated by the inner drive to produce the best results and to be part of creating something great. Great vision without great people is irrelevant.

That's good stuff.
