Rise to the Occasion

The intersection of humanity and the divine can be accessed through the honorable path.
It is one thing to tolerate someone with whom we disagree, and another thing entirely to welcome them. Yet, the noblest of all is to truly honor those with whom we deeply disagree.

Centering Thought: It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor them for what they are. – Hermann Hesse
