“Me Too”

“Writer Anne Lamott says that the most powerful sermon in the world is two words: “Me too.”

Me too.

When you’re struggling,

when you are hurting,

wounded, limping, doubting,

questioning, barely hanging on,

moments away from another relapse,

and somebody can identify with you –

someone knows the temptations that are at your door,

somebody has felt the pain that you are feeling,

when someone can look you in the eyes and say, “Me too,”

and they actually mean it –

it can save you.

[From Jesus Wants to Save Christians by Rob Bell]
