We aren’t nearly as good as we think … but we are more than we thought!

One of the paradoxes of being a Jesus follower is beautifully and simply described by writer Ruth Haley Barton…


“Solitude is the place of our own conversion. In solitude we stop believing our own press. We discover that we are not as good as we thought but we are also more than we thought.” … Ruth Haley Barton, Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership: Seeking God in the Crucible of Ministry.
