Heartbreaking: Rick Warren finds son’s copy of ‘A Purpose-Driven Life’

It’s not a sin to be sick …whether diabetes, AIDS, or mental illness. #NoStigmaNoShame

Pastor Rick Warren has been going through a very public period of mourning following his son’s suicide earlier this month. Fortunately, the trolls seem to have lost interest in tormenting Warren, leaving supporters to offer their support and prayers.

That Rick Warren tweet made me sad. To save so many and not be able to save your kid has to be heartbreaking.

Tweet after tweet, @rickwarren shows us how to be a godly person enduring great pain. Seriously. Scan his ‘full profile’. We love you, Rick.

@rickwarren Your willingness 2 allow the public into your deeply personal grief & tragedy testifies to your character #trueleader #humility

Following pastor @rickwarren is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Being open/honest about faith and pain is how hearts find healing.
