“It’s about how we show up in this world in the limited time we have.”    - Michelle Alexander ; Spirit of Justice with Michelle Alexander & Angela Davis

"We have to imagine another way of being, another way of existing in the world.”    - Angela Davis ; Spirit of Justice with Michelle Alexander & Angela Davis


“Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”    - Mark ; Mark 5.34


“Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them."    - Mark ; Mark 11.23


"He replied, 'If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.'"    - Luke ; Luke 17.6

"'Go,' said Jesus, 'your faith has healed you.'”    - Mark ; Mark 10.52


"I traveled to faith— learning to trust the righteousness of God in spite of trouble and injustice; learning to trust women of many colors regardless of sexism, racism, classism and homophobia in our society; learning to believe in the sanctuary power of family defined in many ways in addition to nuclear; discovering love in a variety of forms that heal, but also believing serious political action is absolutely necessary for justice to prevail in the world of my four black children and other mothers’ children. Faith has taught me to see the miraculous in everyday life: the miracle of ordinary black women resisting and rising above evil forces in society, where forces work to destroy and subvert the creative power and energy my mother and grandmother taught me God gave black women."    - Delores S. Williams ; Sisters in the Wilderness: The Challenge of Womanist God-Talk


"But the ancient meaning of the word 'believe' has much more to do with trust and commitment. 'To believe in the good news,' as Mark puts it, means to trust in the news that the kingdom of God is near and to commit to that kingdom."    - Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan ; The Last Week


"It ill behooves the man who is not forced to live in a ghetto to tell those who must how to transcend its limitations. The awareness that a man is a child of the God of religion, who is at one and the same time the God of life, creates a profound faith in life that nothing can destroy."
   - Howard Thurman ; Jesus and the Disinherited
