Quote-worthy Wednesday: Occupy

Chap Clark, one of my seminary professors and president of Youth Worker Journal (among other things), wrote the following to those involved in the Occupy movement today on his blog:

To my friends in the “Occupy” movement: as you hold these strands [do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God] together, I stand with you; ignore or deny any of these, even in the service of “the cause,” and life is out of balance, and ultimately people are hurt.

History has proven that civil disobedience rooted in social justice and bounded by unfiltered mercy is a noble cause that changes nations. History has also shown that civil disobedience driven by self interest, unfair labeling, irresponsible rhetoric or blind ignorance spawns the seeds of anarchy where no one wins.
