Derek Webb on judgment

This quote by Derek Webb encapsulates my ponderings and discomfort of the past year. I hope it challenges and motivates you.

"I felt a lot of people around me drawing lines in the sand, and that year I decided: I don't want to draw lines and have to be on one side or the other, but if someone's going to push me to one or the other side of the line, I'm going to stand on the side of those being judged because that's where I feel Jesus meets people."

I really like Derek's quote, as well. Can you tell me where this is taken from?? Thank-you.

Bill, I read it in this great blog response to an interview with Derek: http://leftcheek.blogspot.com/2010/12/evangelicalism-and-good-news-through.html . The blog post contains a link to the original interview, if you're interested.
