Policing the Facts = Failure

By: Geoffrey Holsclaw

Why does it seem that more information does not lead to better transformation?
Why does correcting false facts always seem to backfire on us?
From political conflicts to pastoral care, we must dig deeper in every conversation.

In this new episode of Theology on MissionGeoff Holsclaw and David Fitch talk about how personal identities are at stake in all the information we hold dear and how this affects pastoral ministry and cultural issues.  They talk about how we must always listen for the conversation below the conversation, and 2) how we must always give an alternative identity to people, not just alternative information.
