toward a praxis of theological disagreement

rob mcalpine passes on some helpful advice to remember when we find ourselves in disagreement with another.

as we've mentioned here before and elsewhere, a key to resolving conflict is to get inside the head of the other person. this does not mean that we can't simultaneously hold deep convictions. it does mean that we learn to entertain the humble hypothesis that our opposite is correct or that at least we can learn something from them.
