- The radical option is nothing more or less than for the church to be a way of life. — Rodney Clapp, A Peculiar People
- The original Christians, in short, were about creating and sustaining a unique culture — a way of life that would shape character in the image of their God. And they were determined to be a culture, a quite public and political culture, even if it killed them and their children. — Rodney Clapp, A Peculiar People
- Hospitality is the welcoming of strangers. This is a third major property that defines an abundant community: There is always a welcome at the edge, regardless of how bonded the members of a community might be. A neighborhood is not really a competent or abundant community if strangers are not welcome. — John McKnight/Peter Block, The Abundant Community
