Life is not a battle with evil

Life is not in battle with death, with evil, for evil is a part of each of us, or humanity, as much as death. As if the right foot were at war against the left! We cannot chop off evil; we can only love the person, can only practice wholeness. This is precisely why hurt and hope arise at once in the telling of human stories. Telling and hearing are in community: they are essential to wholeness and therefore so is community. Because hearing is necessary to telling, community is necessary to wholing.
