What would our lives, our communities, our world look like if we framed our discourse, embedded our beliefs about God, ourselves and others, in yes? For far too long our institutions of society, religion and government have taught us a language of no. We need to reclaim yes! Yes to love, yes to mercy, yes to equality, yes to dignity, yes to peace. Yes is not easy. Yes can be frightening, even dangerous, but from our very beginnings and at our deepest core, we were made for yes.
