    “I won’t wash my hands anymore.” on “opinions”, testing the truth, and maintaining relationships (even when it is hard)

    A reading from a recent Medium post titled “I won’t wash my hands anymore”: on “opinions”, testing the truth, and maintaining relationships (even when it is hard). In it, Jason writes about a recent Facebook argument, but also how his faith reminds him to not to turn away from others, but to remain in relationship even when it is challenging.

    Daring to be Silent Together listening to Howard Thurman, watching Watchmen, and listening to each other during a pandemic

    A reading from a recent Medium post titled “Daring to be Silent Together: listening to Howard Thurman, watching Watchmen, and listening to each other during a pandemic". This episode follows a group that I lead once a month in group spiritual direction, with lots of silence and listening to each other. We have also been rewatching Watchmen at home as I have been reading Howard Thurman's spiritual writings and reflecting on race in this country.
