Facing the Risk

Today, the letter exchange continues! This, from Jen Pollock Michel:

“Risk is always going to be a part of whatever we do, especially whatever we do as Christians by faith. There is always a risk, in our creative lives, that the work will be misunderstood, ignored, neglected, criticized. But those public reactions to the work are, what I call, “above the ground” reactions. Surely our work is doing more private, hidden good than we could ever know. Our words are likely encouraging someone to keep moving, keep believing, keep hoping.”
