"More than once I'd been accused of being anti-Israel because I had befriended her terrorist enemies. My defense was simple: 'The best way I can help Israel is by leading her enemies to Jesus Christ.' My purpose was to introduce them to the Prince of Peace, the only One who could cure the rage in their hearts."
- Brother Andrew, Operation Desert Light

"The only thing harder than hatred is love. The only thing harder than war is peace. The only thing that takes more work, sweat, and tears than division is reconciliation."
- Shane Claiborne, The Irresistible Revolution


It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
~ South Afica 1966

I always say that if we believe terrorists are beyond redemption, we can rip out half of our New Testament, since it was written by a converted terrorists who became an extremist for grace. It's what happens when we discover that God has desperate love for losers just like us."
- Shane Claiborne, The Irresistible Revolution

"Our world is desperately in need of imagination for we have spent so much creativity devising ways of destroying our enemies that some folks don't even think it's possible (much less practical) to love them. We have placed such idolatrous faith in our ability to protect ourselves that we call it more courageous to die killing than to die loving."
- Shane Claiborne, The Irresistable Revolution

"If you judge people, you have no time to love them." ~ Mother Teresa

"When an engineer builds a bridge, the fact that a cat can pass over the bridge is No proof that the bridge is any good. A train must pass over it to prove its strength. "

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 "But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest in me. That is why, for Christ's dake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong"

No power of hell, no scheme of man
Can ever pluck me from His hand
'Till He returns or calls me home
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand

I guess the truth is, its not really about me at all, is it?
