SUMMARY: Empathy is the key to healing America. It needs to be learned as it provides the path to loving our neighbor and the solution to real-world problems.
KEY QUOTE: “Empathy is not just for feelers, gurus, saints or the politically correct. It is for everyone. Rooted in scripture and science, it is skill based, and can be practiced and mastered like a discipline. I believe it is the only virtue muscular enough for us to meet the complexity and pain of our day because empathy is a pathway to genuinely loving our neighbor”
