Grace and Peace be with you. Our country, churches and our even lives are engaged in emotionally charged, high stakes conversations. Holding firm to our convictions while listening with courtesy and respect can be a challenge.
Using various online resource and our own life experiences each of us will identify key words, practices and concepts that can help set a compass bearing for how we can be attentive to respectful, considerate conversations, especially with those who have significantly different views from our own. Every two or three days there will be a new reflection question which you will respond to and then interact with others.
By committing to this reflective practice and dialogue there is an opportunity for you to grow in love of God and others.
