Dr. Cynthia Eriksson, Fuller School of Psychology, USA
This encouraging devotional, given 19 February, 2009, set the stage for the three lectures that followed at Fuller’s Integration Symposium. Cynthia Eriksson shares her journey as a missionary with mental health training and as a psychologist in missions. Using the interaction of Jesus and Peter in John 21: 15-19, she encourages us to live in the freedom of who we are and the freedom of who we are called to be. Her healing words are especially addressed to those of us in leadership: like Peter our frailties are not so much obstacles as they are a means to experience God’s grace, relationship, and call to lead.
