My practice is to listen deeply to what I am feeling and thinking and ex-periencing and then to try and communicate that in my writing as honestly as I can — looking at everything through a lens of grace.
None of us can see without bias, but we can identify the lens we are looking through. Lutheran minister Nadia Bolz-Weber says her lens is grace. Mine is curiosity.
Practice:What is yours? (Fine if it’s aspirational: “I wish it were kindness but most of the time it’s . . . “)
Advanced practice: After you identify the lens or lenses you use, tell someone.
