    Thank you so much, Peter. This is really important to consider. I definitely appreciate this as I know my point was an oversimplification. As white person who was raised in a progressive environment, hubris for me looks like “I am on the side of the oppressed so my opinion MUST be helpful here.” when perhaps I have not done the work of listening first. Your point about the type of theology and hubris being the issue is one I definitely want to think about more as I grow in my understanding of when it is my turn to speak. I know there will be times when it is not only ok to speak up, but absolutely necessary and how to find that balance without speaking over or for is something I am still learning. This will be a really helpful lens with which to approach the rest of the book. I am so appreciative of the opportunity to be in this fellowship and the space to wrestle with these questions.
