If you're going to counsel people - and that's all my ministry is, it's a counseling ministry more than anything else - people have to believe that they can trust you and that they can listen to you, that you're going to try to help them and not just politically try to convert them to your views.

Some suggestions for you :

Turn your scars into stars.

Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future.

Goals must never be from your ego, but problems that cry for a solution.

You can often measure a person by the size of his dream.

Probably the one Bible passage that is read by Jews and Roman Catholics, Protestants, Islam, more than any other chapter is Psalm 23. And in Psalm 23 there is a verse that says, 'Surely, yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil.'

When an opportunity comes, it holds possibilities. And when you move away from it or don't sense it or grasp it, you're really throwing away your future; you're throwing away your tomorrow.

What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail.

You never suffer from a money problem, you always suffer from an idea problem.

We all know that a church is not a building.

I tell people, 'I was born in a little house at the dead end of a dirt road that had no name and no number, and you can go anywhere from nowhere.'

Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.

I was never close to Jerry Falwell because he had his ministry, I had mine. And we came from different theological training and from a different psychological education.

Press on. Obstacles are seldom the same size tomorrow as they are today.

The Crystal Cathedral is not an attempt to be an architectural ego-statement. It's probably the ultimate spiritual and psychological statement that could be made in architectural terms.
