I was in a program with Jon Berghoff last week and he shared “If we can’t honor and create space for dissent, we’re not a community.” What a powerful statement.
It struck me as it seems many of us have lost this skill in the United States. We have lost the ability to disagree and commit.
Our humanity and community depend on it. Will you be part of the solution or part of the problem.
I know my own desire to be right shuts down my ability to learn at times. My ego gets engage in thinking the way I see it is the only way, the right way. When I can enter conversations inviting challenge and discourse, I learn. Sometimes I change my mind.
