The Impact of a Small Group with a New Vision on Society

Robert Bellah is the Elliott Professor of Sociology, Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley. Throughout his academic career, he has been very interested in the influence of religion on society. In an interview in Psychology Today, several years ago, he said, “We should not underestimate the significance of a small group of people who have a new vision of a just and gentle world. The quality of a culture may be changed when two percent of its people have a new vision.” (John Stott, “Christians: Salt and Light,” PreachingToday, Tape no.109; www.PreachingToday. com)

Did you hear that? It takes only two percent of the population to make a difference.
