“I don’t like using the word success when talking about ministry. I’d much rather use words like health, faithfulness, and obedience.”–J.R. Briggs

J.R. Briggs is a pastor and the author of Fail: Finding Hope and Grace in the Midst of Ministry Failure (InterVarsity Press). Quote from article “Pulpit Disappointment” in Christianity Today,  July/August, p. 87.
