“I question the motives of anyone who chooses to commune with a group of people solely to become more effective at serving them. Seeking to infiltrate a community for the sake of evangelism is, at worst, manipulative, and at best, misguided. Rather than blending in, or striving to be culturally relevant, perhaps our goal should be to speak our truth, love well, and nurture a diverse yet healthy community. – Jack Legg, Conspire (Winter 2012)
