Lessons from Willow Creek 3

The leadership book that I’m reading at the moment is the latest one from Bill Hybels called Axiom

It is an accessible read full of practical wisdom. Here’s a quote from the chapter entitled 'Vision Leaks'.

Something I have to remind myself of constantly is that people in our churches have real lives. You heard it here - engagements other than church. They have challenging jobs, children to raise, lawns to mow, and bills to pay. Because of all these daily responsibilities, the vision we poured into them on Sunday begins to drain out of them sooner than we think.

Definitely worth a read!
