Thoughts from the Human Event

Here were some of my favorite quotes from Alex McManus at the Human Event in Orlando:

“Cultures tend to be exclusive. Xenophobia is almost a universal experience. God is actively attempting to remove xenophobia from the earth.”

“How does my culture rate on the inclusion scale?”

“Cultures have different understandings of significance. The human future (God’s future for us) is a world where everbody matters.”

“Our failures will instruct us.”

“We are immigrants needing to learn to translate our message and learn to listen with open ears. An immigrant is desperate to understand his new culture. We should be active social researchers. Courage and humility make an immigrant more effective. Before opening our mouths we need to open our ears.”

I am looking forward to Alex’s forthchoming book: Making the World Human Again: The Quest to Save the Future from Religion
