I rarely state my political preferences. That doesn't mean I don't have them. Yet I have discovered that those who have views opposite my own have, on many occasions, substantive things to say. (Imagine that... !)
It makes me wonder how much closer we might come to effective solutions for the challenges we all face if we actually listened to one another instead of screaming into each other's faces from the bottom of the well--which so far has produced little in the way of rescue.
This quote by John Wesley sums up my attitude about the whole affair and is my favorite contribution to the 2012 political campaign so far. It was posted by a 30 something pastor, a friend of mine who, thank God, gets it.
