Yvette Flunder advocates for transparency and authenticity in the pulpit by encouraging preachers to draw from their personal experiences and vulnerabilities in their sermons.

“The truth is, I am who I am because of my experiences.  And I say, like Paul, by the grace of God I am who I am, and who I am is in many ways the sum total of my experiences.”
