"If you want to reach out to one who is struggling to stay above water, go to them. But don’t ask them to give you their hand. Instead, offer them your hand. Don’t ask for their heart, offer them your heart. Offer them your ear, your love, your shoulder.”
Extending a hand, Omid Safi writes, rather than asking a person in need to grab yours can make all the difference. A column with a poignant parable to draw you in.
