While researching the topic of vulnerability (a growing edge of mine) for a reflection paper that I’m writing for school, I came across this quote by Brené Brown that I had not seen before. It stopped me in my tracks, resonating with me as I examine my story through the lens of authenticity, truth and vulnerability from both inner and outward perspectives.  I dropped the quote into a photo of mine of a lotus blossom on the verge of opening, representing where I am and how I feel in this process of walking inside my new story, discerning how my ministry will unfold as I travel the path towards ordination.
