Finding a new space for conversation about differences is vital. We cannot compete with one another to see who 'wins' the contest of ideas. Instead, we live with one another respecting our own integrity as much as we respect the integrity of others. This is the Christian vocation in a world of the world of ideas, exchange, and shaping our world. I accept that another disagrees with me. It is dangerous when the disagreement minimizes, scolds, or, discredits the other. It is just as dangerous when the agreement places our point of view on a pedestal. Both are bound to fall and crumble instead of creating something new for God's world.
