In these days of heated political campaigns, it’s hard to hear or imagine a soft answer. But if we can get past the yelling, past the arguing, we can get somewhere. It’s not easy to do, and I don’t always do it well.
But there comes a point in an argument when you really are just yelling past one another. Slowing down to speak calmly and to listen can calm the anger and help us to live in peace.
Anger still has its place. But we should guard it and keep it in check.
I believe this.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here. And, by the end of a year, if not sooner, you’ll be able to purchase the entire series in ebook format.
