"In this passage, we are given a picture of how our Christian ethics and values are worked out in community – as we work together to apply the ways of Jesus to our lives."
Wendell Berry “Two Minds”
"The Rational Mind is motivated by the fear of being misled, of being wrong. Its purpose is to exclude everything that cannot empirically or experimentally be proven to be a fact. The Sympathetic Mind is motivated by a fear of error of a very different kind: the error of carelessness, of being unloving. Its purpose is to be considerate of whatever is present, to leave nothing out."
