Jesus is, in some ways, the only true revolutionary. Most revolutions merely rearrange the furniture on the deck of the Titanic. Jesus built a new boat.

Unless spirituality answers the questions of power and powerlessness there is never any real reform. There is never any real advancement in human history, because the so-called reformers are done in by the struggle. The cross is finally about how to stand against hate without becoming hate yourself.Richard Rohr, John Bookser Feister, Hope Against Darkness
