And I’ve been thinking ever since about the power of a random comment
on a blog post to engender what resulted in an exercise in public theology — giving me the chance to think through “what did I mean by the comment I posted?” and inviting my correspondent to hear a perspective different than her own.
And it’s gotten me wondering about the ways and times and places we all can benefit from asking questions of those with whom we differ — like my email correspondent did — and also about challenging ourselves to respond to those who question us as a way of building bridges of understanding across those differences. An email at a time.
A conversation at a time. An inch at a time.
