In this wide-ranging chat, Patsy gives a lovely overarching sense of how compromising can be incredibly healing and powerful. She talks about how most people probably don’t want to make compromises, but she assures us that a true compromise doesn’t have to require an individual to give up his or her values, morals, and standards. Instead, it involves deep and humble prayer to God, where we are willing to let go of our opinions and listen to God, divine Mind, for intelligent guidance and the adjustment that may (or may not) be needed.

Patsy addresses questions on compromise as it relates to dealing with people with rigid thinking and stubborn willfulness, working out marital problems, moral questions in relationships, complicated community issues where compromise seems impossible, how to bring healing to opposing ideologies that won’t compromise, how to get along with others who have different political views, praying about the recent legalization of marijuana in some parts of the United States, and more.
