Still learning to zip my lip

But, I think I'm making progress.

Still, it's sometimes difficult to decide when you can make a difference by speaking-out, and when you should just keep your mouth shut.

This morning, a discussion about Martin Luther really offended my sensibilities.

Ten years or so ago, I'm sure my reaction would have been different. Today, though, I managed to remain silent.

It wasn't easy.

In fact, it was a struggle.

But, now I'm glad discretion won out.

Sometimes speaking truth (even if it's only your own), isn't necessarily productive. Besides, truth has a tendancy of revealing itself in much more profound ways than yours truly could ever articulate.
