Pride can sometimes cause us to think that we won't make the same mistakes that others have made or that we can be the exception to the rule.

In the final episode of our series, Tony and Amy discuss more miscellaneous stupid church tricks, like mistakes related to multisite, church websites, church buildings, and more.
