I’m reading The Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne for an upcoming district meeting. Today I came got to the part with this quote that describes so much of what I post on this blog:
Sometimes we speak to change the world; other times we speak to keep the world from changing us. — Shane Claiborne, The Irresistible Revolution, Updated and Expanded: Living as an Ordinary Radical (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2015), 20, 110.
So if you find yourself disagreeing with something I say here, remember that rather than trying to change you, I may be just trying to make sure the world doesn’t change me. Thanks for your tolerance and patience.
*Shane states that Elie Wiesel taught him this, but I’ve been unable (despite the awesome power of the internet) to trace the quote back to Wiesel.
