1.31.16, Courage through Vulnerability, Rev. Kent Matthies

As we look toward February and its spiritual theme of courage, Brene Brown’s message resonates. Ms. Brown is a writer and teacher who for good reason has become tremendously popular with spiritually progressive folks. She writes: “Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable.”  As individuals and a community how can we counter-intuitively lead with our vulnerabilities on our way to courage?
