RADIO PROGRAM NO. 402 - Communication That Heals

[The speaker is Jerome Franke. The questioner is Harlan Witham.]

Questioner: Antagonism and misunderstanding are hard to take when you're trying to communicate with other people. It can be a real impasse when we are trying to get something important across.Speaker: I agree. What we communicate can make all the difference. In such situations it has helped to ask myself what my motives are in dealing with others. Do I want to heal the situation? Am I willing to see both myself and the other fellow change?
