A Quick Opinion Poll

I have a quick question for everyone.  A little background first.

I'm making a video for our El Salvador coffee hour.  I want to open with a quote by Father Oscar Romero, a man much beloved in El Salvador for his heart for the poor and his willingness to live his life for God.  Our mission trips to El Salvador are often about friendship and about walking with the church there and showing them they are not forgotten.  I have about 5 quotes that I am looking at.

With that information, which quote do you think would best open the video?
1) Let us not tire of preaching love; it is the force that will overcome the world

2) ...the joy of sharing and the feeling that all are one's family does not pass away

3) Where there is "what is noble, what is good, what is right," there is God.

4) How do I treat the poor? ... The way you look at them is the way you look at God.

5) When we struggle for human rights...we are not departing from God's Promise.

If you want to vote, could you please leave a comment with the number you prefer in the comments section?  Or, I can tell you that I'm leaning towards the second quote...do you think, knowing what I stated above about walking with El Salvador, do you think this quote is appropriate or inappropriate?

Thanks for your help!!


  1. I love number 4, it seems to be along the lines of the message you are trying to convey!

  2. I really like the first one, but I think the second one fits best with the friendship and walking with the church you're talking about.

  3. I love the first one too! Like your friend Laurie... so ... two votes for the first quote! :)


  4. Want to know what's funny? The first one was the one I was going to use and then I doubted!

  5. I really like the first one as well. I see your lean with the second though.
