Ignorance Makes a Difference
There is a story of Jesus' about a Good Samaritan that helps shape my definition of "neighbor" more broadly than I instinctively would choose. My neighbor, the one I might have conversations with, is anyone I encounter, face-to-face or virtually.
So, when I was introduced to the "The Ignorance Project," by my wife Penny, I was interested. When I took their quiz to Challenge my own perceptions I realized there were some conversations I still needed to have.
For my learning & conversations, I use tools like UMCOR (The United Methodist Committee on Relief) and Palmyra Circles as starting points. I find new insights with the GBGM (General Board of Global Ministry) and with my friends from other places and traditions. I am always exploring and learning.
Where do you begin your conversations? I'd love to hear more.
