Countdown: Day 3
That, of course, is no argument for passive pietism and quietism; it is, rather, a call to the most costly, radical activism, the one that calls us to be the change we want to see in the world. It is the call to be the light of the world – not merely to complain that the world is too dark. It is the call to be the salt of the earth – not merely to protest the world’s rottenness. It’s fruitless to argue being versus doing: you can’t do what you won’t be. (Brian D. McLaren, Naked Spirituality: A Life with God in Twelve Simple Words.
