Quote of the Week

"It is not an accident that, in nearly every social or political crisis through which the peoples of the Caribbean have passed in recent times, the ministers of the Churches, whether their training was received locally or perfected abroad, have invariably been strangely silent or else represent a position which is reactionary and alien to the legitimate aspirations of the majority of the people. It reveals a form of training and preparation for the ministry of the Church which fosters attitudes of elitism, escapism and alienation which in a struggling post-colonial society are quite unprogressive and, at times, even obstructive."

William Watty, former president of the United Theological College of the West Indies and author of From Shore to Shore: Soundings in Caribbean Theology.
