Well done, Rick and Kay Warren

Since I first heard him speak (I think it was around 1984?), I've had great respect for Rick Warren. His positive attitude, his practical focus, his amazing consistency - they have been an inspiration to me. Rick played a big part in my decision to leave higher education and become a pastor (arguably an even higher form of education) back in the mid-80's. Whenever we've met, I have experienced Rick as a good and gracious man.

I'm deeply impressed by the way he is turning the tragedy of his son's death into a motivation for service, focusing his unparalleled energies on the mission of removing the stigma from mental illness. As someone with a lot of mental illness in my circle of family and friends, I'm grateful that Rick will be leading the way in this important mission.
