Powerful Quotes About Pain
I am LOVING what I am experiencing, along with 30 amazing youth workers, in our Urban Youth Ministry Certificate weeklong intensives here in Pasadena this week. There’s a lot of great discussion in our Theology and Philosophy of Urban Youth Ministry class taught by Lina Thompson. Kris Rocke, whose statements are quoted below, is a guest lecturer.
Here are some quotes that have got me thinking about pain, and its importance in our growth and our ministries:
Kathleen OConnor: The first condition of healing is to give voice to pain.
Kris Rocke: Your authority is tied to your wounds
Helmut Thielicke: The greatest problem with the church is our inability to suffer.
Richard Rohr: if you dont transform your experience of pain, youre going to transmit it.
Kris Rocke: Almost on a daily basis, I use my distortions of the faith to hide from reality. And so do you.
