Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord. - 1 Corinthians 1:31 (NRSV)
In 2003, I was hospitalized for depression. My image as a pastor’s wife who had it all together was shattered. I spent two weeks alongside drug addicts, schizophrenics, and alcoholics. By society’s standards, we were failures and outcasts: weak, broken, and ashamed.
As we each shared our stories, I watched...
God loves and accepts me as I am.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
