Truth Wars

On the occasion of people going back to school in a time when everyone is on edge and uncertain about the future. Rev. Barnaby reflected on what we may most need to learn, and to teach our children: truth isn’t simple and we shouldn’t be aggressively defensive about our current view of it.
