This is a follow up to my recent article, "The Sounds of Silence".
Fr. I. the Trappist Monk at the Abbey referenced in that article is head of end of life Pastoral care for the older and more infirm of the monks there.
My credibility respecting them, what is sacred to to them for them, with no desire to attack or change what they devote their lives to; and brought to them a member who fit into what their are doing and benefited greatly form it is long established.
The good Fr. and I are sharing, working with and creating new methods, techniques, and training materials based on our experiences over the decades assisting those leaving this level of existence in each of our Pastoral roles.
I mention this because people who have differences also have common ground.
The win-win occurs when people use the common ground to work together.
This is at the highest level perfectly compatible with what each founds their efforts to do.
We all get farther working together than snarking, disrepecting, distractiing, going negative, dwelling in ignorance about what matters to others for them and other examples of immature and unfriendly misconduct.
Amidst all the acrimony that ensues on the News Talkers, what can community members share about how they got ahead by co-operating rather than being adversarial to others.
Your examples of getting ahead by getting along with others can be drawn from cyber space or real life.
Helping others counts.
Site CoC, TOS; and the Four B's Will Be Enforced.
Or Be Gone!
We look forward to learning from, and being inspired by your examples of fellowship; mutual harmony, warmth, co-operation, respect and progress towards a better life for others and us.
Hopefully some of this will rub off on the front page.
Peace and Abundant Blessings Always.
