From THE GOOD AND BEAUTIFUL GOD, pg. 163
"We minister out of our brokenness. We heal others through our vulnerability because that is where Christ shines most brightly. Then we can offer them the one thing people need most: JESUS. Henri Nouwen writes, 'The question is not: How many people take you seriously. How much are you going to accomplish? Can you show some results? But: Are you in love with Jesus. In a world of loneliness and despair, there is an enormous need for men and women who know the heart of God; a heart that forgives, cares, reaches out and want to heal.' I shared with Carey the truth that God's power is made perfect not in our perfection but in our weakness."
