Moleskin:

YHC watched the segment aired about F3 Greensboro and was really impacted by the quote of ““Our one rule was we can disagree with one another, but we cannot be disagreeable towards one another.” This has become my Mantra for 2021 and will share it as often as possible as I firmly believe this is one answer to the issues we face in our country today.  It falls closely in line with the concept of Tent Pole leadership.  The largest support pole in a tent is in the middle, if it were at the ends, the tent would sag and ultimately collapse.  By coming together in the center of the tent, two sides can have a conversation, understand one another’s point of view, and ultimately decide to agree or disagree. If disagreement is the end result, the true HIM walks away for the conversation respecting the other point of view and not being disagreeable or hostile towards it.  Without coming to the center for the conversation, there is no way to truly understand one another’s point of view.  Yelling across the tent is required just to be heard, but yelling is not a way to have a quality conversation.  I urge you all to come together, have the tough conversations but walk away respecting one another.  We all can disagree with one another but should not be disagreeable!
