Rick Warren's 'Long-Term Relationship' with Rwanda

"If you take all the people of faith out of the equation you've taken out most of the world," said Warren. "If you could say only secular people could do humanitarian work, then think about this: one in three people in the world is a member of a church. The actual number of secular people is actually quite small outside of Manhattan and Europe. When it comes to humanitarian work, I say that I don't care why people do it , as long as they do it... the reason I do it is because I have a savior named Jesus Christ who said 'love your neighbor as yourself.' That's why I do it."

"I don't think I barely resemble myself to myself or to my family," said Kay Warren. "My kids say, 'Who are you? And what have you done to our mom? Where did she go?' I was a stay-at-home mom when my kids were growing up. Really involved in the church, but I didn't work outside of the home. Now I'm gone. I travel. I work really long hours. I'm talking to all kinds of really interesting people. It's hard.

"I like who I'm becoming. I'll put it that way. I like who I'm becoming because, I have to quote somebody who I really like and is kind of famous, I have purpose. I know why I'm here. I know what I'm supposed to be doing. There is such fulfillment in that."

"The P.E.A.C.E. plan is not a five-year plan," said her husband. " It's not a 20-year plan. It's a 50-year plan. Reformations take 50 years. It does not happen overnight. The problem with most of our planning is that we set our goals too low and we try to accomplish them too quickly. Instead, we need to have bigger vision and bigger goals and devote the rest of our lives to it. I've got maybe 20 years to give to the P.E.A.C.E. plan. It will not be accomplished in my lifetime. It won't, unless there's an absolute miracle."
