Gifts to offer

My chapter on helping introverts find healing is moving a little slow, as all the Christmas social events are taking away from my writing time and my motivation is waning as we draw closer to the long Christmas weekend.

But I'm particularly excited about the section in this chapter that looks at the gifts that introverts have to offer others. I'm not going to go into detail about these gifts, since I still want you to read my book, but here are some of the gifts I'm talking about:

1. Compassion
2. Insight into the lives of others
3. Giving "space" and listening to others
4. Peacefulness/restfulness
5. Loyalty
6. Creativity/imagination
7. Helping others slow down
8. Servant-minded

Introverted Pastors

I've been having a hard time finding introverted pastors who work in churches. I'm surrounded by introverted chaplains, introverted elders, introverted parachurch workers, but introverted church pastors have been more elusive. I know they're out there! If you know an introverted pastor, preferably one who lives in the Los Angeles/Orange County/Inland Empire area, who you think might have some insight into my topic, could you email me? I will be very careful and discreet with the information you give me. To email me, go to the main page on my blog, and click on "View my complete profile" in the right column. Under my name will be a link to my email address.
