“Everywhere I go, I meet people, old and young, from all over the world, and they tell me about their lives, their relationships, broken families, their addictions, shame, guilt, failures. You’ll never be able to speak into their souls unless you speak the truth about you own wounds. You need to tell them what our Lord has come to mean to you in the midst of your disappointments and losses. All ministry begins at the ragged edges of our own pain.”

~ Thomas, in Chasing Francis by Ian Morgan Cron

Question: Are you leading from your strength or your weakness? And is there a place for both?
