Soul Food for Friday: Quotes from the April 2013 National Leaders’ Webcast

As a taste of the Global Leadership Summit this August 8-9, Willow Creek had its National Leaders’ Webcast. Besides introducing this year’s Summit Faculty or 13 Reasons Not to Miss the Summit, there were some great quotes I picked up to file away. May they feed your soul this Friday and lead you to become part of the 170,000 people globally who will attend/watch/experience the Summit in the year ahead.
