spacer One of the blind spots I find difficult to erase is the belief that because something seems true to me, it should seem true to you.

I think this arrogant error may be at the root of a great deal of incivility and division. It breeds impatience in my soul, shrill rhetoric in discussions, and an unwillingness to engage in the unhurried reflection and conversation that is required in a legitimate search for truth.

This web site represents our attempt to slow down, think, listen, and speak in a way that assumes we are all creatures of great dignity and value as persons made in God's image. We hope you join the conversation.
