Change is good. Progress is good. Moving forward is good. The conversation in the public square often assumes that the change, progress, and movement, is toward something good for everyone.
But there is always backlash.
Backlash has a bad wrap. Resistance to change is often seen as fundamentally negative. Very few people think the resistance could be out of prudence, or caution.
Yes, some of us definitely don’t like change, but maybe someone just doesn’t like the speed or scale at which it is happening.
Maybe backlash is a signal to engage more, to go deeper, and pursue more truth, rather than something to simply dismiss?
After all, we are all in this together.
