I/Thou / Book Info and link 

You are invited to ponder these following questions and respond below, if you'd like.

Reflection Questions:

1. In what instances, recently (or most painfully) have I felt on the receiving (It) side of the I/It dynamic?

2. Can personhood truly be taken away by another?

3. What are the fruits you've seen in I/Thou dynamics?

4. In what ways do I most often engage in I/It (distancing) dynamics?

5. How might I disrupt the common I/It dialogue and culture in my life and  surroundings?


I'm interested in your thoughts on the topic (even if you disagree).

These show notes will be available to the public 10 days after they are posted. Please share them widely. THANK YOU!
