Barbara Brown Taylor on finding common ground with others.
Questions for Reflection
- To experience change deep within, we face our 'shadow' selves, the parts of us that are 'not so pleasant' with the opportunity to accept or reject who we really are. Can you imagine doing so? How would not rejecting yourself liberate you? Do you think God accepts all of what makes us who we are? How does that impact your view of yourself? Of your family members? Of your community? Of cultures?
- Do you think people need a common ground to accept that each of us is accepted through Christ? How would having an 'everyone is accepted' mentality liberate you?
- Is it important that we are all so different? Is it important to find a common ground with one another? How are our differences designed for our growth?
