"We are the ones we've been waiting for"

And other great reflections from CCDA, by:

  • Rudy Carrasco, 1, 2, 3 -- "There is race fatigue in this country. What is usually unspoken is that it now appears that African-Americans, Latinos, Asian-Americans and others also have responsibility when it comes to racism, and no one is talking about this. "
  • Neil Cox 1, 2, 3, 4 -- "What a blur! Record attendance (up nearly 70% from last year!), great cyber cafe and internet connectivity, GREAT PRAYER ROOM, great spiritual temperture, great networking and real relationship-building, and great everything."
  • Bob Campbell, 1, 2, 3, 4 -- "Extreme inequity is unjust. God wanted to make sure that no one got stuck on the bottom of the pile. Our system keeps people stuck on the bottom of the pile. We shouldn't be standing for justice. We should be moving for justice! Standing doesn't get us anywhere."
  • Noel Castellanos, 1 -- "We brought together 25 young leaders to express to them that CCDA needs their input, leadership, and experience."
  • Jose Humphreys, 1 -- "John Perkins said, and I'll paraphrase, that we as individuals will never be totally more like Jesus. That's why we have the church, the collective embodiment of Christ here in this world."
  • Allen Greig, 1 -- "It’s deeply convicting to hear an unashamed, prophetic rebuke for us His Bride to act like His bride - a sweeter, truer gospel of times gone by, missing in far too many of our anemic, lazy churches."
  • Glen Peterson, 1, 2, 3 -- "Juan Herndez ... spoke ... about the justice issues surrounding immigration. Very interesting facts. Like this one from Exodus 23:9. 'Do not oppress an alien; you yourselves know how it feels to be aliens, because you were aliens in Egypt.'"

I had forgotten about that quote that Jose mentions. That was classic and Truth.

It was nice to meet you. Thanks for the mention here. There is something about my friends at CCDA that makes it feel like home, no matter what city it's in.
