James Montgomery Boice on dreaming dreams

April 29th, 2010 Posted in 20th Century

Love this quote from James Montgomery Boice: “One thing is certain, unless we see visions, dream dreams, and make plans, there will be no great steps forward in the work of the Gospel.” [Romans, Volume 4: A New Humanity (Grand Rapids: Baker Books, 1995), 1872].

 

Thanks to Revd. Nathan Eshelman for alerting me to it.

I am disturbed to think that we have to convince churches of this basic fact. Do these churches know nothing of the last five hundred years of church history?
