“Anybody who wants to create positive change in the world needs to have a working understanding of power. The Christian community, therefore, is that community that freely becomes oppressed, because they know that Jesus himself has defined humanity’s liberation in the context of what happens to the little ones. Anybody who wants to create positive change in the world needs to have a working understanding of power.”James Cone, God of the Oppressed
