“truth has no agenda”

“truth has no agenda”

This post about truth points out that truth is relational. The word truth comes from the Old German trothe which is connected to troth and betrothed which suggest being in relationship. Truth is not “relativism gone wild” as the final line suggests. We speak it with compassion, but also recognize that some ‘truths’ are problematic. Those we speak out against when they arise and we remain in relationship with the world, a better world.

About ivonprefontaine

I am a retired educator who recently completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. My dissertation topic and research was how teachers experience becoming who they are as teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  1. Thank you, Ivon for re-blogging this. You are right about the relational nature of truth. Making room in our hearts for someone else’s truth is what can open us to healing.
