‘There’s a lot of temptation, especially in this country: we have to be culturally relevant, right? (laughs) But one of the things Christianity has often been is a group of people who find themselves ‘cultural refugees’, like John the Baptist.

‘A person that’s in love with their vision of community will destroy it, but the people in love with the folks around them can create community’

‘As Mother Therasa said, “It’s very fashionable to talk about poverty, but it’s not so fashionable to talk to the poor.”‘

‘If we really care about the poor we can name them.’
