I just read about this fellow, A. J. Muste who was a peace advocate. He died in 1967. He did these vigils outside businesses that seemed to make a living on war related stuff. Someone asked him why he did it. I guess the questioner thought it was a fruitless attempt to change the world. Muste gave this answer. "I don't do it to change the world. I do it so that the world does not change me." I love that quote. Whenever I think I am wasting my time or there are no results in what I do that I can see, I might ask myself what I would be like if I did nothing. When I don't pray, when I ignore being useful, when I stop the search, change is happening. It is a change in me and it is not so good.
