    From Rev Ruth Scott, an Anglican vicar in Richmond.

    For the last couple of years on Sunday mornings I’ve had the opportunity to experience communal silence with the local Quakers. On a wall in the Meeting House is a poster. Fittingly, it’s largely white space with the following few words: ‘Thou shalt decide for yourself. No one telling you what to believe, just the peace and quiet to work it out for yourself.’ This is a rare gift in today’s world. Whether it’s Western powers imposing what they think is right on other nations’ conflicts, or Islamist fighters weighing in to someone else’s war, or terror groups literally exploding into the lives of innocent people with the purpose of destroying opposition, or even our own unwillingness to understand and make room for other points of view, we seem to be losing sight of the value of respect. In the workshops I help facilitate ‘respect’ usually comes up when the group is discussing what needs to be on their working agreement. Because these groups are made up of people who have seen, and may still see each other as the enemy, they’re not agreeing to respect the views of members whose actions may have caused them deep trauma. It would be wrong, for example, to ask someone to respect a person whose organisation was responsible for the murder of their loved one. Respect here is about accepting that another person has as much right as you do to share their story and to give them the space to think through their experience. When people hear the life histories of those they’ve hated, and when they feel their own story has been heard, their understanding often changes. It’s interesting to note that those who resort to violence frequently do so precisely because their pain has never been taken seriously. Giving other people respectful space to work out what’s going on in their lives may be a gift, Chris, but it’s not a luxury. If we’re to live in peace with one another, it’s an absolute necessity.
