Rick Warren Must Have A Great Editor

Articles Collection cover image

This morning I received an email from Rick Warren. Yup. Rick took time out of his Sunday morning, which I assume is quite busy, to send me an email. I would have thought he’d be busy putting the final touches on his sermon or perhaps praying, but no, he emailed me to ask if I can help him with a very special project.

I noticed that his style of writing is a little bit different in this email than in his books. All I can conclude is that he must have a really good editor – one he did not consult prior to sending me this email.

Below is the complete text of the email he sent me (which was sent from [email protected], so it must be him!).

Unfortunately I cannot, at this time, spare $20,000. So sorry Rick, you’ll have to find your support elsewhere.
