Shake Off the Dust

Sometimes trying to do the hard thing stops you from doing the easy thing.

When Jesus is rejected in his hometown, he doesn’t double down; he just… leaves. He doesn’t waste time fighting big battles trying to convince people who are vehemently opposed to him. He walks off to do his work somewhere it is better received, and he tells his disciples to do the same thing.

Modern peace and justice movements have learned this lesson and do something similar, with an idea that has been named “The Spectrum of Allies.”
