2008 Good Gifts for Preachers



Crying in worship along with having a good cry with the Pastor is healing. When I go into a Pastor's office and see a box of kleenex (or "facial tissue"), I know the Pastor is comfortable with tears. If you can cry around a Pastor, you can tell them anything.

Tears clean out soul and mind debris.

If you can cry, be grateful. Crying is a gift if you have bunched all your sadness inside.

I am not too good at crying (but getting better as I age!) and so I will keep this quote in my collection to remind me not to fight my tears.
