Episode 7

Jesus mobilized poor people to challenge the religious and economic establishment. And he did this as an impoverished teacher. At the time, many viewed him as powerless.

Sometimes we feel powerless too. But with God we are powerful. And, if we are honest with ourselves, many of us have some measure of societal power as well because of our access to information and technology, and to clean water and plenty of food. Sometimes we keep this small sense of power to ourselves.

Once you recognize your perspective, your power, and your vulnerabilities, you can decide the most strategic role for you to play in a nonviolent direct action.

The roles required for a given action will vary based on tactics.
