Recently, I was working at a starbucks and I overheard a conversation between the store manager and a general contractor. What captured my attention was the passion and excitement in their voices. Their anticipation was infectious, I wanted to pull out a radial saw and help.
I recently met with a hurting youth worker. While the situation was a little unusual, the result was common: conflict. After reflecting on our conversation, I articulated the following lessons in my journal so I don’t forget them the next I need to restore a relationship.
