So glad RAAN thought to talk about the exchange between Doug & Thabiti and give some tangible takeaways. This blessed me! I hope to one day see a live panel of the two. Perhaps Legacy?
“Stay at the table” Even a guy like me with the “hair trigger” , I think if we stay in the conversation, understanding can lead to mutual empathy. I would however say that a book like the one pastor Doug wrote can no longer get by the smell test because, at least in part, of those who fought the fight that came before. I would say it like a metaphor: Although we are grateful that the ambassadors have great verbal persuasive skills, we still have to come to agreement with the Russians at some level because of their willingness to use the power behind those words.
