We return to the wisdom of Valerie Kaur as we consider how to connect with people who act as our opponents. It begins with listening. “To listen to our opponents is to seek to understand them–not to change them, or persuade them, not to compromise with them, or legitimize them. Listening to our opponents preserves their humanity—and our own.” Choosing to tend the wounds we see in the world around us allows us to explore what we really mean by Beloved Community: relationships, community, and a world where we all flourish.
