Tribune columnist comments on Barak Obama's speech

Dawn Turner Trice had this to say in today's Chicago Tribune
"Too often it seems talk about religion evolves into a mini-sermon rather than a discussion. One person comes off as having all of the answers and knowing the only path to the truth and the light. In the end, very little ground is gained."
Shortly after I read her editorial I read this in Brian McLaren's book Generous Orthodoxy in his chapter on "Why I Am Incarnational" (p. 290)
"Having acknowledged and accepted the coexistence of other faiths, Christians should actually talk with people of other faiths, engaging in gentle and respectful dialogue."
