How Have You Been Learning to Do Good, Better in This Work?

On the Better Samaritan podcast, we’ve had the great privilege of interviewing many humanitarians doing critical work around the world.To close every episode, we ask the same five questions:  What has surprised you in your work? How are you learning to do good, better? What does humility look like in your field? How can we make the [Jericho] road safer for those coming in the future? How do you sustain hope? We thought it would be fascinating to to compile all the answers to each question, one after the other, in order to notice what themes emerged. (Each full episode is linked, so you can go back and listen to the ones you find interesting.) Our guests work diverse fields: public health, racial conflict, climate change, politics, and displacement, just to name a few. We found the resulting product to be fascinating. Last week, we listened to a compilation of answers to our first question: what has surprised you in your work? Compiled in this episode are the answers to our second question: How have you been learning to do good, better in this work?RESOURCES:"On Being a Good Neighbor", sermon draft by the Rev.

We thinking learning how to do good better involves listening to lots of perspectives, with different insights and understanding with us. Sometimes it will make us uncomfortable, sometimes we'll agree, sometimes we won't. We think that's good. We want to listen for correction. Especially in our blind spots.)
