An army of lovers

I have to borrow another Inward/Outward quote, since it fits in so well with my post from last night:

Shane Claiborne

Lovers are hard to come by. And I think that’s what our world is desperately in need of–lovers, people who are building deep, genuine relationships with fellow strugglers along the way, and who actually know the faces of the people behind the issues they are concerned about. We are trying to raise up an army not simply of street activists but of lovers–a community of people who have fallen desperately in love with God and with suffering people, and who allow those relationships to disturb and transform them.

Inward/Outward is published by Church of the Saviour, with whom I spent a volunteer year in D.C. They send daily quotes through email that are insightful and thoughtful. Check out the website here: http://www.inwardoutward.org/
