You Are The First Move!

Moltmann, in his book Experiences of God, wrote:

Only the person who has found his own self can give of his own self. What else can he give? it is only the person who knows that he is accepted who can accept others without dominating them. The person who has become free in himself can liberate others and share their suffering.
