In our baptisms we pledged, with GodÕs help, to strive for justice and peace among all people, and to respect the dignity of every human being. But we cannot do that if we are constantly elbowing people out of the way in order to get what it is we think we are owed. We cannot do that if we fail to see the image of God in the faces of those whom we deem to be insignificant, or least, or last.
-Br. James Koester, SSJE
