Lyric of the Day:
“I’m just too selfish I guess
I know you’re tired and restless
It’s no surprise we’ve come undone
But I can’t not love you just because
You say it’s better in the long run”

“Pray the lord your god will show us what to do and where to go.”
~Jer 42:3

Quote of the Day:
“When a friend calls to me from the road
And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
I don’t stand still and look around
On all the hills I haven’t hoed,
And shout from where I am, What is it?
No, not as there is a time to talk.
I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,
Blade-end up and five feet tall,
And plod: I go up to the stone wall
For a friendly visit.”
~Robert Frost, “A Time to Talk”

Verse of the Day:

“I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.

~Jer 31:3

Quotes from session 4 – Steven Furtick (Lead Pastor, Elevation Church):
Audacious Faith – 2 Kings 3:9-20
Only God can make it rain – We can do everything we can do to prepare….but only He can send the rain.”
“I can’t expect God’s blessing on my work unless I do it God’s way.”
“How are we going to get from inspiration to implementation? If all you have are some good ideas does not make you a visionary. It makes you a daydreamer. The difference between a vision and a day dream is the audacity to act and the faith to get started.”
“If the size of the vision is not intimidating to you there’s a good chance it’s insulting to God.” **Fav quote from the whole conference.
“I may not have all the resources right now, but I have exceeding promises in God’s word.”
“When the vision God has put inside you doesn’t match with what you see, close your eyes and keep going.”
“If we want to see the land filled with water then start digging ditches.”
I can say fairly confident that he was in my top 3 favorite presenters in the two days.

Verse of the Day:
“To acquire wisdom is to love oneself;
people who cherish understanding will prosper.”
~Prov 19:8

Quotes from session 2 – Len Schlesinger (President of Babson College at Harvard):
Action Trumps Everything
“We are all entrepreneurs.  Only too few of us get to practice it”
In the face of unknowability what will action look like?
– Starting on the firm ground of reality – be honest with where you are.
– Start with the things you care about.
– Use what you have at hand
– Have friends and resources available to you for support
– What kind of SMALL step can you take NOW?
– Act quickly with the means at hand.
– Looking for the expectable return is nonsense.  Instead think about what the acceptable loss is, and only stop then.
– Failure doesn’t mean game over, it means try again with this new experience.  So stop operation with the fear of failure.

Quotes from session 2 – Cory Booker (Mayor of Newark, New Jersey):
Stand Up
“You are the result of a grand conspiracy of Love”
“We have what we have today because those before us saw hope in desolate times and chose to stand.”
“Your attitude about the world says nothing about the world; it says something about your character.”
“If it is to be – It’s up to me”
“If we LIVE our values we can create radical transformation”
“But before you tell me what you teach, show me how you live and give.”
“Let us now stand up. Let us stand because people stood for us and fought for us and bled for us. Let us stand because … change never rolls in on the wheels of inevitability. Let us stand because ‘liberty and justice for all’ must be a passion and purpose every day. And if we stand like this, then we will find a way to get to the roof.”
