"The Rev. Jay Geisler invited Call to Renewal to his church because he's weary of Christians squabbling over ideology, and desperate to address the poverty and hopelessness in the neighborhoods around St. Stephen Episcopal Church in McKeesport, Pa." ' … Theologically, I'm in that broad, silent majority that at some point is being forced to speak up,' he said. 'This polarization is tearing churches apart, tearing our country apart. Each side wants winner–take–all. We don't seem to want to see win–win anymore.' "

"Lest the LORD see it, and it displease him, and he turn away his wrath from him.
"Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked:
"For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out."
"Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation.
"Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him."
"The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken. The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands."
— Psalms 9:15-16
