Comfort and hope

I came across this via facebook and a blog by Pastor David a Lutheran minister in rural Texas. This lovely piece was on his ‘about’ page and just summed things up nicely for me today.

The Gospel is not a pat on the back for good people.
It is comfort for grieving people.
Hope for broken people.
Love for hated and lonely people.
 

You can read more of his writings via his blog: Called to Passion
