Conversation, listening, and interreligious dialogue

McGuinn Hall
 And again (from Fred Lawrence): conversation is really allowing somebody to tell you something that is not so easy to accept. Better, of course, if they do it with love.

A true friend is someone who can tell you what is not so easy to tell and not so easy to accept.

Now a key gift of the Holy Spirit is the ability to listen. And so interreligious dialogue is not just telling. It is listening.
