Thoughts worth exploring after the confirmation hearings

Jacob Hess, PhD, has recently written and posted on the national Bridge Alliance site some ways to break through the divisiveness in our country and move forward more productively. It’s worth taking the time to read. Jacob is a good friend of mine who I have dialogued with and who I’ve helped create group and community conversations regarding some of the most divisive issues facing our country. He’s one of the primary leaders and movers in our state and even nationally in creating more civil and productive dialogue between individuals and groups who disagree passionately with each other.
