Respecting Differing Opinions

There has been a big debate about respecting other people’s ideas on social media lately. The election cycle seems to bring out both the best and worst in people.

I have a few things to say on the issue.

1) We don’t have to respect other people’s beliefs and ideas.

2) We do have to respect people for who they are.

3) Sometimes it is hard to do, but we have to try.

4) When we hold other people’s beliefs and see where they are coming from it can help us respect other and grow together in learning and searching for what is true.

This sermon from October 18, 2015 talks about how to do just those things.
Here is a link to the podcast and a link to the First UU of Austin page which has a transcript and a video of the sermon.
Hope you enjoy and are inspired.

Namaste,
Cricket
