Thought for the day

“It is true that in a world of high consumption, where anything and everything is possible, nothing is so humanizing as love, and a conscious interest in the life of others, particularly in the life of the oppressed.  For love leaves us open to wounding and disappointment.  It makes us ready to suffer.  It leads us out of isolation into a fellowship with others, with people different from ourselves, and this fellowship is always associated with suffering.  It changes the world, in so far as it puts life into a static situation and overcomes the death urge which turns everything into a possession or an instrument of power.”

~Jurgen Moltmann
