Generosity in quotes: Walter Brueggemann

” . . . life does not consist in frantic production and consumption that reduces everyone else to threat and competitor. . . The odd insistence of the God of Sinai is to counter anxious productivity with committed neighborliness. The latter practice does not produce much; but it creates an environment of security and respect and dignity that redefines the human project.”

 

Walter Brueggemann, William Marcellus McPheeters Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary and author, from Sabbath as Resistance: Saying NO to the CULTURE OF NOW
