Where did these people come from?
What made them who they are today?
Why are people reading their books and listening to what they have to say?
What distinguishes them from other authors, pastors and leaders?
The answer comes in this beautiful word.
I’ve learned more about compassion than any other time period in my life.
Not passion, not vision but compassion.
The willingness to care deeply from the heart.
