Relationships are Never about Power

Wm. Paul Young

“Relationships are never about power, and one way to avoid the will to hold power over another is to choose to limit oneself – to serve. Humans often do this – in touching the infirm and sick, in serving the ones whose minds have left to wander, in relating to the poor, in loving the very old and the very young, or even in caring for the other who has assumed a position of power over them.”

Excerpt from Young’s book, The Shack, the book as become a #1 New York Times Bestseller. It has been said of The Shack: “This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress did for his. It’s that good!”
