The theme of listening is the subject of my latest column at Catholic Lane. There has been a lot of buzz about the whole "radtrad" debate that I seemed ot have kicked off. What do trads do now? I cover that, and give a few other ideas going forward.
Listening is one of the hardest things to do, especially in a tribalistic polarized landscape like we often find ourselves today. We have an inclination to "refute" and "argue" under the guise of a dialogue, when in reality, we should just shut up, let the other speak, take to heart his words, and act on them later.
