Red Edge Perspective: We Must Have The Uncomfortable Conversations
Over the years I have come to realize it’s crucial we learn how to confidently talk about the uncomfortable, especially those things which make us different… Race and sexual orientation, politics and religion, mistakes of the past and of the present.
Asking sincere and respectful questions, listening with a strong desire to understand, and having real conversations will create real understanding, build real connections, and foster real relationships.
Such conversations are needed now in Cache Valley.
I’m grateful for those like Richard Ostler who foster such conversations to build bridges between the LGBTQ and LDS communities through his podcast Listen Learn Love.
I will continually strive to also foster healthy conversations.
Listen. Love. Care.
