Sure. People will change their actions, their thoughts, maybe even their beliefs.

But no one wants to truly change themself.

We love the words of Gandhi “Be the change you wish to see in the world,”
but only so long as it means changing what we do.

But please, never ask me to change my heart.

Never ask me to love the unlovable.
Never ask me to give up my ideal world for the world that is
Never ask me to forfeit my life, for the good of my enemy

Now you go too far.

Friends, we truly can change the world,
but it doesn’t start with creating a new 501c3
It doesn’t begin with fighting oppressors of this world as if they are the problem

Changing our world starts (and probably ends) with changing ourselves.
By learning to see others as we see ourself…broken.

in need of love.

When we see others with the grace they have probably never been given
When we see them with the potential for good they have always been denied
When we change our own hearts to love them no matter the pain they cause

we begin to change everything.
