Readers have asked me how to respond to the harm of social division that I write about in White Picket Fences. I have written free discussion guides to help individuals and groups. I’ve also created resource pages to accompany these guides with suggestions about how we can use our heads, hearts, and hands to participate in healing.
Read more about these distinctions between head, heart and hands in my blog post, Hope for Healing: Engaging with the Problem of Privilege.
My hope for myself, and for anyone who hears me speak or who reads White Picket Fences, is a patient and humble engagement with the issues of social division, starting slowly and quietly. Engagement that doesn’t rush to action but sits patiently and learns and listens, grieves and connects, asks for guidance, pursues friendship, and begins to trust in love instead of fear.
