"It’s hard to self-correct, but it is the pathway into honest unity within a group. You don’t get unity by suppressing the part of the group you don’t like." - Dr. Jennifer Finlayson-Fife
It is important that we never prioritize our ideology over love.
Making efforts to know and understand those who experience the world differently than we do expands our view and allows us to create stronger families and communities.
In this podcast episode, Dr. Finlayson-Fife joins Tina Gosney for a timely conversation about the importance of bringing honesty and courage to our faith community, especially when it comes to complex and divisive social issues. Being both loving and honest, even with varying perspectives, fosters greater understanding and compassion, and helps us all become wiser.
