“World conditions challenge us to look beyond the status quo for responses to the pain of our times.  We look to powers within us as well as to powers without.  A new, spiritually based social activism is beginning to assert itself.  It stems from not hating what is wrong and trying to fight it, but from loving what could be and making the commitment to bring it forth.”

– Marianne Williamson
