I have recently been experiencing something that I haven’t in a long time. I have, on several occasions, been in conversations with people who have quite different theological/political/social bents than my own. I have come to realize the I often surround myself with “My Own” types of folks – not intentionally, but often due to the ease that it creates.
In light of these recent experiences, I have had the opportunity to consider my own point of view, why I believe what I do, and pray for guidance. It has been a good time of growth even though there are times of feeling ill-at-ease.
My quandary is, do you also surround yourself with people who think like you? Or are there a number of people in your life that make you think outside of “Your Own.”?
