Oops!

In recognizing the support staff for the Children’s Summer Music Camp, we failed to mention Martha Williams of Quaker who played the piano for us during large group choir on Wednesday and Friday. Thanks for your great contribution, Martha.


 
Overconfidence!

We need to worry more about overconfidence than we do incompetence in leaders. Incompetent people make lots of mistakes but are rarely in places of influence. Incompetence irritates me, but overconfidence scares me. And we should be worried by the fact that we live in a culture that actually likes and rewards overconfidence in its leaders. We think that, in times of crisis, we need daring and bold leadership from charismatic leaders, but we don't! We need humility...the ability and willingness to listen to others as a learner.

—Malcolm Gladwell
