From Richard Rohr – Search for the Holy Grail
“The way to bother with [opposite sides | opinions | polarities], is to stand in between and speak truth on both sides. But when you speak truth on both sides, normally neither side will hear you or fully accept you. For me, the insight of the Gospel is this: We must build the bridge.
We must be the pontifex, the bridge builder. We cannot build a bridge from the middle. We have to build a bridge from one side. The Gospel says you must build a bridge from the side of the disempowered ones. (This is divine revelation. Common sense or culture have never reached this conclusion; only God reveals it.)
