The Growing Edge


The Growing Edge Question of the Month

Every month, we post a new Growing Edge Question and invite reader comments.

In our October Question of the Month we ask for stories of kindness.

At a time when the mass media are filled with stories that often feature the worst of humanity, we want to focus on acts of human decency and kindness. These stories, however small, are important. They remind us that the "better angels" of our nature are ever-present and at work. They give us hope!

Our October Question is

"Do you have a story about an act of kindness that changed something for you, or for someone else—an act that made you or another person feel seen, heard, and affirmed in a meaningful way? It might be a moment you observed, or one in which you participated, either giving or receiving a gift of kindness."

We hope you’ll share a story with this online community—we’d love to hear from you!

~ Click on any of the Question of the Month headings below. You’ll be taken to a page where you can read other people’s comments on that Question, and leave your own. We’d love to hear from you. Thanks! ~

[We also post a monthly podcast, offering our own reflections on the Question of the Month, sometimes in dialogue with a guest. This month Parker and Carrie have an open hearted conversation about navigating conflict personally, vocationally and politically.
