95 Theses for Christian Racial & Ethnic Unity: #11

“Who are we together?  If we can’t love each other and envision what God can do through us together, then how are we going to love the rest of the world?  How are we going to change the world? . . . .We are the Body of Christ, and everyone within the Body has gifts to share.  We surround ourselves with a diverse Body that will fill in the holes we leave because of our own humanity.  God made us weak so that we are forced to rely on the support of each other and, of course, God.”

Shane Claiborne and John M. Perkins, Follow Me to Freedom: Leading and Following as an Ordinary Radical (Ventura, CA: Regal, 2009), 167, 181.
