Thank you for sharing this. It resonated with me because it is something that I could easily hear my husband saying to a critic as well. :) I truly appreciate you sharing your life in ministry here; it is an immense blessing. A dear friend of mine is a member of the Sojourn Grace Collective and it lifts my heart to see and learn of such a beautiful community in Christ through his stories, your sermons, and your blog. Thank you and God continue to be with you. ^_^
