“I’d rather hang out with a humble conservative than a self-righteous liberal. And I’d rather hang out with a humble liberal than a self-righteous conservative. Humility is life-giving. And self-righteousness is always toxic.”

I heard Shane Claiborne read from his chapter in the newly released How to Heal Our Divides book on Monday night, and these words resonated so deeply with me. Yes, we need to speak truth. Yes, we need courageous activism. Yes, we need people to stand up for justice.
