No Limits Noland

a Biblical thought...
Jesus refused. "First things first. Your business is life, not death. Follow me. Pursue life." (Matt 8:22)

a Book thought...
A management obsessed with productivity usually has little patience for the quiet time essential to profound creativity. (p64 MacKenzie)

a Dave thought...
It has been great to have Commissioner Joe Noland with us this week at ACC. After hearing him share numerous innovation stories both in the sessions and over meals what impresses me most about this man is his ability to get his ideas happening. Many of us in The Salvation Army have ideas, plans and new initiatives that we dream of getting up and going but only a few seem to succeed and Joe is one of these. It doesn't just take a good working knowledge of the operational structures of our movement to get action but also prayer and perseverance. I thank God for the inspiration Joe is a Salvo innovator, and I hope that somehow we can make it easier for all the creative dreamers still in The Salvation Army today.

Just a thought.

What a powerful, anointed, fantastic, fun-filled final 24 hours at ACC. Talk about a crescendo!

The Collinson, Knaggs, Noland, Court/Strickland, Rook team is a terrific combo.

Thanks for your hard work Dave. Good on ya cobber!
