"Work in the trenches; serve the afflicted and needy; do the little by little redemptive work. But also lift up your hearts and see the world. And as you look, you who understand the soul damage of trauma and abuse – speak to the church and call her to loving action around this globe."
--Diane Langberg, Ph.D.
