As my husband Ron and I walked into the Magic Kingdom yesterday we saw the words: Let the Memories Begin! It’s been the marketing campaign for Disney Theme Parks since September 2010. Disney hopes some of our best memories will be made within their sparkling gates.
I’m really looking forward to the next three days at St Luke’s United Methodist Church in Orlando as Executive Pastors and other second chair leaders from the top 100 United Methodist Churches in the U.S. gather to learn from Disney executives and network with one another. The opportunity to experience the excellence of Disney and then immediately hear how top leaders guide the organization is an intriguing opportunity.
I believe the Disney theme is even more relevant in the church. I’m already thinking about how we can help growing Christians create more great memories that will motivate them to keep moving on their journey of spiritual growth. If you have a great memory that has helped you keep growing I would love to hear about it.
