Sure it (the church) is a mess. People are a mess. But we are all better than the worst things we do. An just as we can see the evil that humans are capable of it in the worst sinners, we can also see the goodness we are capable of in the saints.
- Shane Claiborne, Follow Me To Freedom
But my true brothers are those who rejoice for me in their hearts when they find good in me, and grieve for me when they find sin. They are my true brothers, because whether they see good in me or evil, they love me still.
- Saint Augustine, Confessions
