How did this make an impact?

  1. Dear Pastor Rick,
    Thank you for the article on vulnerability. It is something of our humanity that is not spoken about and usually avoided. I have reflecting on my vulnerability a great source of learning about me, ministry and serving God`s people. Have you read anything by Brene Brown on the Power of Vulnerability. She has some brilliant Youtube videos on the same subject too.

    Go well and take care,

    Pastor Delroy Hall

  2. Am blessed by the message, is an eye opener to me, what is required from in to run a ministry. Also to know that it should be focused to bless others. A work that begins with relationship with God flow to others.

  3. I feel more human, thank you, I’m so blessed with that word.

  4. Thank you Pastor Rick for the reminder. In recently years the Lord has been teaching this truth of staying truthful and humble while pastoring His church. I fully agree with your statement: when you share your weaknesses = Community. Experiencing that while sharing my weaknesses with the leaders under my charge and even with my congregation. Of course with wisdom we share appropriately.

    Thank you Pastor Rick,
    I love the way you have communicated this simply and very effectively. I have drawn strength from it and will reread from time to time as i need it.

  6. Mr. Warren, Though these shared thoughts are indeed inspiring, the only way to they are of any immeasurable use is to act on them in faith to anyone at anytime. Welcome to the ordinary life of God’s extraordinary pulse to love our Creator, one another, and ourselves in every thought that pre-shapes our action.

    Truly Christian is he ministers to the heart ,because it comes from the broken and healed heart.

    Great article. As always from our dear pastor Rick

  13. Great reminder. Just like Paul wrote, “But he said to me, “’My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV)
