New places within

Date: January 29, 2012

 

Jim Wallis, the founder and editor of Sojourners magazine, once wrote: "Social movements that can change history must eventually affect our leading institutions. But new visions cannot arise from those old structures, new values will not be created from old assumptions, new leadership does not often emerge from the rank of old elites, who are the most imprisoned by the old systems and options. A new vision must come from new places-new places in all of us."
