Becoming

“We want a big God who fixes our problems. We don’t want a little God saying ‘I need you and I’ll come and live in you. I’ll give you a new strength, a new spirit and you shall work so people become free and loving and peacemaking.’ We always want a God who is going to fix our problems, but God is saying ‘I’ll give you the strength so you become one of those who work with others to bring peace to our world.”

~ Jean Vanier
