A number of years ago a person let me know that they were a seeker and what did I think about one of the major world religions.  I wasn’t prepared to answer.   I did gave an answer and I saw it shut her down immediately.

Lately I’ve been in the same town she is and have reached out to her.  No response.  Ugh.  I did it wrong.

Here’s what I should have asked?

  1.  What motivates your question?
  2.  Tell me about your journey?

Those two questions could have changed everything.

I still grieve.

Lesson I hope I will learn.
