"People are scared of the radicalness of God, but that doesn’t get off the hook. Jesus told us do not be afraid. Usually when you’re doing something for God many people will say, well that is just crazy! Don’t believe them. Jesus has so many things for you. Its the crazy ones who change the world, and its the crazy things that change us. Don’t forsake your calling because someone else is scared of the unboxed God we serve."
"We can’t say we understand an issue when we know no one who is experiencing it day and night. It’s always easy to talk about fighting for justice and about an issue without realizing the harsh realities of what that means. Get to know someone and listen. There are stories you haven’t heard yet. Be willing."
