Phil Vischer: What if Your Dream Dies?


On October 3, 2011 the Creator of Veggie Tales, Phil Vischer, gave a talk at Liberty University Convocation on how God worked in his life and career through his experiences of success, fame, and failure. He asked students when a dream dies, what is more important: God or the dream? Furthermore Vischer spoke on how God worked in his life and career through his experiences of success, fame, and failure.

The talk includes precious lessons on first place and not making a god out of God’s work. Run time is 33 minutes. (Note that in the first couple of minutes there is some lighter conversation to break the ice before Vischer gets into the core of the message.)
