A safe space allows a change of mind
Sometimes, in pursuit of efficiency, we encourage snap judgments and actions. These activities rely on assumptions to pull off, and, unsurprisingly, assumptions can turn out wrong.
Thus, to temper snap judgments and actions, we should encourage more safe spaces for people to change their minds. Holding people accountable does not mean telling them “I told you so” when they acknowledge they were wrong, but rather, it means providing them opportunities for authentic conversion.
Matthew 21:28-32. ‘I will not,’ but afterwards he changed his mind and went.
