Tony Campolo’s wife Peggy was s stay at home mom, but because he is a professor at a major university, they had to socialize with men and women who were leaders in their fields.  Not long thereafter, they were at a party. A woman said to Peggy in a rather condescending tone, "And, dear what is it that you do?" Tony said he heard his wife respond, "I am nurturing two Homo Sapiens into the dominant value of the Judeo-Christian tradition in order that they might become instruments of social transformation preparing them for the eschatological utopia which God has envisioned from the beginning of time. What do you do?"
