Tweetable Moments from the Summit

This year I opted to not attend the Global Leadership Summit, sponsored by Willow Creek! It was sort of a bittersweet decision, as I look forward to the spiritual jolt I get from the Summit, especially as I prepare to head into the fall. But after 10 straight years of attending, I decided to take a pass this year.

However, as a huge fan of the Summit, I have been reading the blogs, watching the Twitter feed and even got a live stream of one of the segments online. So while I wasn’t actually in attendance, I did manage to grab a few nuggets from this year’s Summit based on the wonders of modern technology! Here are a few of my notable quotes and take aways…
