IVP - Strangely Dim - The Quality of Change

June 6, 2008

The Quality of Change

Forty years ago today Bobby Kennedy died of a gunshot wound in California, marking the abrupt and unsettling end of a surprisingly hopeful kind of era. In its e-newsletter today, Sojourners quotes Kennedy's speech in Capetown, South Africa, two years to the day before his death. His words offer a fitting kick-off to all our weekends:

Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality of those who seek to change a world which yields most painfully to change.
