Too cool to be used by God

“My reaction to the faith healers was more than culture shock. I never saw anyone practise healing in a way that I would want to do it. A good deal of the responsibility for not being able to understand or accept contemporary healers was my commitment to trying to be ‘cool’, though I never measured up to my own standards of ‘cool-ness’. (Cool-ness’ is a jazz musician’s euphemism for pride.) I wanted to be socially acceptable, highly regarded in the community, sophisticated.  Most of the contemporary healers appeared foolish, weird, bizarre. But God has a way of using foolish things to confound the wise, imperfect but willing people to manifest his glory.” John Wimber (Power Healing)
