Activist-Contemplative

" You have to take care of your faith because you can’t be an activist for a long time unless you also become a contemplative. If the quest for spirituality isn’t disciplined, the quest for justice becomes narcissistic. It becomes another commodity to be bought and sold at Barnes and Noble. But the struggle for justice, not nurtured and rooted in spiritual soil can easily become worn out, tired, frustrated, angry, bitter, even nihilistic and violent, I’ve seen that too."
