Interesting quote from “The Irresistible Revolution, Updated and Expanded: Living as an Ordinary Radical”

Hi – I’m reading “The Irresistible Revolution, Updated and Expanded: Living as an Ordinary Radical” by Shane Claiborne and wanted to share this quote with you.

“I thought to myself, Wouldn’t we all go to a church that believes in ordinary fools and ragamuffins and whose gospel is actually good news? I’ve grown to admire the humor of a God who uses foolish things to shame the wisdom of this world, and weaklings to remind the strong that they may not be as mighty as they think they are (1 Cor. 1: 27). And in an era of smart bombs, maybe the world needs more fools. There have always been “fools” in the imperial courts, but it’s an interesting age when folks trust the court jesters more than the court itself.”
