A Quote by Walter Brueggemann on transformation, play, entertainment, reality, text, and interpretation

We now know that human transformation does not happen through didacticism or through excessive certitude, but through the playful entertainment of another scripting of reality that may subvert the old given text and its interpretation and lead to the embrace of an alternative text and its redescription of reality.

A Quote by Walter Brueggemann on peace, peacemakers, war, righteousness, justice, faith, faithfulness, work, mission, and love

People notice peacemakers because they dress funny. We know how the people who make war dress - in uniforms and medals, or in computers and clipboards, or in absoluteness, severity, greed, and cynicism. But the peacemaker is dressed in righteousness, justice, and faithfulness - dressed for the work that is to be done.
