My heart churns within me; my sympathy is stirred. I will not execute the fierceness of my anger; I will not destroy Ephraim. For I am God, and not man, The Holy One in your midst; and I will not come with terror. (Hosea 11:9)At my job, I talk to a lot of people with different views and I can't always challenge people the way I'd like. Because we're trauma informed. And sometimes that's really hard. It forces me to listen though. Behind prejudice and Trump support, there is fear, some of which is legitimate. When we meet fear with more fear and anger, then things get worse. When we listen, acknowledge, and challenge with compassion, then things get better.
(I'm mentally and emotionally exhausted! I would have added'physically,' but I can still move my pinky.)
