Humility


I was looking on Amazon at one of John Dickson’s latest books “Humilitas,” checking some of the reviews, when I read the following quote.

“Humility applied to convictions does not mean believing things any less; it means treating those who hold contrary beliefs with respect and friendship.” (p. 167).

I like the quote, and having had some deep conversations at my diocesan leadership conference with people who hold some beliefs contrary to mine, I find it particularly pertinent.

I might have to put it on my wish list
