Jer Swigart :: How do I have relationship with those I disagree with?

  • “A shortcoming in North American Christianity is that we’ve trained our people to tribalize and find people who are just like us,” answers Jer Swigart, Directional Leader of The Open Door Community and Co-Founding Director of The Global Immersion Project. While there are advantages to having like-minded relationships, we also need people who are different from us to be fully alive; its essential to being human. “We simply don’t have any experience having those conversations […] We have more of a commitment to being right than being in relationship.”
