Great corrective to crusading in the church:
You might rattle on about “the family” while neglecting your children. You might fight for “social justice” by “raising consciousness” about “the poor,” while judging your friends by how trendy their clothes are. You might pontificate about “the church” while not knowing the names of the people in the seats around you in your local congregation. Abstraction distances.
