ACC Officers Day

a Biblical thought...
Don't hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths and corroded by rust or—worse!—stolen by burglars. Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it's safe from moth and rust and burglars. It's obvious, isn't it? The place where your treasure is, is the place you will most want to be, and end up being. (Matt 6:19-21)

a Book thought...
If you are hypnotised by an organisation's culture, you become separated from your personal magic and cannot tap it to help achieve the goals of your organisation. (p53 MacKenzie)
a Dave thought...
ACC Officers Day was very thought provoking and challenging as we explored the officers covenant in depth. As this is the one thing we all have in common regardless of our varied appointments we thought it would be a great focus for the day. Here are some selected quotes...

Captain Jason Davies-Kildea - Is salvation only about getting people into the heavenly lifeboat?

Captain Stephen Court - I guarantee that if you follow the O & R's for the next 12 months your corps will grow.

Commissioner Joe Noland - It is missional leaders not positional leaders that build radical evangelical movements.

Russ Rook - We all chose to be a soldier but God has only called some of us to be officers.

Lieut.-Colonel Janet Munn - The Salvation Army is coming into its finest hour.

Last night at the opening rally Commissioner Knaggs challenged us to get personal with God, and many were moved to make commitments as we had an opportunity to sign a large soldiers covenanent on the wall. It was a God glorifying day and three more to come.

Just a thought.

Hi, you have some great quotes there, but for those of us who just drop by now and again, we don't know where you got them if you don't give a full book title and author's name! I hope you don't mind me mentioning this, but the quote you gave this entry was so good I wanted to keep it! :0)
'Hypnosis' does indeed sum it up.
