My dad kept a small rubber ball on his desk, half red and half
yellow, to get people to understand one of the basic facts of a
dispute. If he held up the ball and asked what color it was,
his reply would not be the same as the person responded because
each was looking at a different color. That is the nature of
many of the disputes we have today, and religion is one of the
areas where such disputes happen.
If we look beyond the proper names of deities and people, we might find that our paths have more in command than they have differences. And if that is true, then it might follow that there might be little substantive reason for dispute. If that is true, then we should be able to keep differences in perspective so that we can work together.
And if we can work together, some great things might be waiting for us!
