Ponder this…

We wonder if anyone would come to a church leadership conference that was a two-and-a-half day event of prayer and reflection.  Probably not.  Weird to think people might pay to hear [insert your favorite big name author here], but would be a no-show if God was the only speaker.

[Neue magazine, Winter 2010 edition, p25]

Sad to say it, but I agree with this statement.  I know, cause I have been one of those church leaders who would go to conferences because of who I’d get to see or hear, instead of Who I would get to encounter and commune with.
