Hansen PASTOR AT LARGE "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made weakness. I will all the more gladly boast of my weaknesses, that power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, calamities; for when am weak, then I am strong." 2 Corinthians 12:9 and There is a bronze plaque riveted to the wall in the rece' room of the Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in York City. The words on the plaque..."A Creed For Those Have Suffered.'...were written by an unknown Confederate Those who pause to read the words, as they come and go, strengthened in their struggle with disability. It seems that an unusually large number of our neighbors and loved ones have been passing through deep lately and we have had our share of heartache as well. I find Creed For Those Who Have Suffered" especially helpful and along to you. I asked God for strength, that I might achieve. I was made weak- that I might learn humbly to obey... I asked for health, that I might do great things. I was given infirmity, that I might do better things... I asked for riches, that I might be happy. I was given poverty, that I might be wise... I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men. I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God... I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life. I was given life, that I might enjoy all things... I got nothing I asked for-but everything I had hoped for. Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered. I am, among men, most richly blessed! There are some people who have never suffered for those words will be mere pious platitudes. Some of us stumble over the theological questions such a philosophy raises. those of you who have experienced your own Calvaw--those know what it is to be weak, persecuted, insulted, know they ring true. God's power is made perfect in weakness we discover vulnerability and compassion. In we discover God.
