Divine grace lifts public discourse

Adapted from the May 17, 2017, Christian Science Daily Lift podcast.

These days, public discourse can be enormously frustrating.

Of course, people have always thought they were right. That’s the nature of human opinion. But today we have more tools than ever before to make our case in “proving” we’re right. We have social media feeds that exclude other voices, we have online blogs and news sites that justify our worldviews, and we have an on-demand culture designed to give us exactly what we want when we want it. We can cite chapter and verse to argue that those who don’t agree are deluded or naive or just plain stubborn.

This trend in the way we talk to one another goes to the heart of some of our biggest challenges as a society.
