Henri J.M. Nouwen

We become neighbors when we are willing to cross the road for one another. (…) There is a lot of road crossing to do. We are all very busy in our own circles. We have our own people to go to and our own affairs to take care of. But if we could cross the road once in a while and pay attention to what is happening on the other side, we might indeed become neighbors.

Howard Hewlett Clark

Whatever task God is calling us to, if it is yours, it is mine, and if it is mine, it is yours. We must do it together – or be cast aside together, and God in his absolute freedom goes on by other means to use His Church in hastening His Kingdom.
