Inspirational Thought

"[O]ne cannot serve a God who has no personal needs in any other way than by working to unite His children. . . . We are divided by sex, race, class, religion, and nationality, just to name a few. By contrast, the at-one-ment of Christ is a powerful force to overcome those divisions and create a bond of unity among humankind. To build a community that extends beyond family or congregation . . . involves law. Properly understood, then, the vocation of a lawyer is to help build communities founded on the rule of law."

-Judge Thomas B. Griffith, "How Do We Practice Our Religion While We Practice?", Life in the Law: Service and Integrity, 2009.
