When I first joined Twitter I followed folks that I respected, or who believed what I believed about the world, politics, and God. But at some point I really felt like my personal news feed from selected sources tended to lead me towards a very myopic view of the world. So one day I decided I would follow some people who I don’t really agree with on many things and to follow some organizations that hold very different views on what is important in the world. I am amazed at how much I am challenged in a good way by some of the people that hold to a very different view of theology than I, as well as by looking at world news through the lens of other political persuasions or cultures.
What do you think? Is it helpful or healthy to create space for differing opinions in your life?
I welcome your answers as long as you agree with me ;-)
