Dr. Barry Jones, chair and assistant professor of Spiritual Formation and Leadership, illustrates that ministry ability should not derive from super-human strength but God's strength working through our weakness. He reads from 2 Corinthians 1 and reminds us that God comforts us during difficult times so that we can be a comfort to others.
