The 5th, and final, nugget from Stanley:
“When your memories exceed your dreams, the end is near.”
- Most churches are living in the “good old days” and trying to figure out how to recapture them instead of creating new ones.
Takeaway: Don’t let past success or current momentum overshadow your vision…keep vision out in front.
