Visit Dr. Owens' blog. Read some of what he has written. He is a fellow traveller. He has perspectives that I don't share, but many that I do. Why should I reject him out-of-hand? Why not engage in conversation, maybe even learn from him things I did not know?
If we don't embrace people who are going in the same direction as us, then we will be stuck talking to ourselves and complaining about not having a bigger influence.
