  • Will Willimon on "Felt-Needs"
  • In an interview published in the Summer 2006 edition of Leadership, United Method Church bishop and noted author William H. Willimon makes the following comment about ministering to “felt-needs” in preaching: “Jesus doesn’t meet our needs; he rearranges them. He cares very little about most things that I assume are my needs, and he gives me needs that I would’ve never had it I hadn’t met Jesus.” Wow!!!
