Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit
Publication Date: 2014-08-25
"This book seeks answers from the heart; it encourages us to utilize our democracy to understand "the importance of faithfully holding the tension between what is and what might be..." As the author says in his prelude to the book, "The democratic experiment is endless, unless we blow up the lab, and the explosives to do the job are found within us. But so also is the heart's alchemy that can turn suffering into community, conflict into the energy of creativity, and tension into an opening toward the common good." As with all of Palmer's work, he leaves us with a different understanding of our connections with each other."
