Building bridges does not mean everyone will eventually agree. It means both worldviews can view each other through a lens of worth based on their shared humanity.
- Both of the opposing worldviews must be actively engaged in the work.
- Both must put down the fear of going against the cultural grain of “acceptable” engagement and be bold enough to enter the bridge building process in proximity to one’s enemy
- Both must understand that there is a very real possibility that there will ultimately be no common ground between the members of the opposing worldviews. Sometimes, the only common ground is that both have a commitment to the bridge building process.
