This is an insightful and unsettling quote from Jean Vanier’s book ‘Community and Growth’ on the dangers of prosperity and self-sufficiency to the welfare of a church or community.
Disturb us, Lord, when We are too well pleased with ourselves, When our dreams have come true Because we have dreamed too little, When we arrived safely Because we sailed too close to the shore.
