Vulnerable? Most of us are uncomfortable with being vulnerable.

However, Adrian Plass says that writing a book is easy – just sit at your keyboard and open a vein. Brene Brown in her talks on TED on the internet has valuable insights into the positive aspects of being vulnerable. 
We saw some of that last Sunday in our church meeting. 
But why are we shy about being vulnerable? 
Predominantly, I think it’s because we don’t like ourselves very much, and if I allow you to see what is going on inside, you might not like me either. 
It’s risky. But all relationships are risky – except our relationship with Jesus, because He is always loving and accepting.Forrest Malloch, Poplars Church
