Quote of the Week

“In order to be participants in shaping the future, we must intentionally associate with those we consider on the margins. . . . . So I ask you: Who are your marginalized, those not characterized as ‘mainstream’? Who are America’s social-economic outcasts? Let us find them and invest in them. In order to avoid becoming spectators of the future, the powerful nations, institutions, and all of us who are privileged must engage with the margins. You and I ignore the periphery at our peril.”

- David Zac Niringiye, assistant bishop of the Kampala Diocese
for the Anglican Church in Uganda,
