I love reading the blogs of my friends; one person in particular, Ashley Burtch, always manages to express my feelings and thoughts with far more articulation than I have ever managed. This is an exerpt from her post Journey Mystery Community:
Community is never perfect. And I wouldn’t want to hang out with perfect people. I wouldn’t belong there. It’s good that sometimes I don’t like the things you say or do, because it means its okay when you don’t like the things I say or do. I still want my roots to become entangled with yours. And maybe if I listen more and judge less, I will learn something from your story. I might discover that you and I are not so different.
So true. Thanks Ash.
