David shares thoughts about how most spiritual and religious traditions have a core set of principles in common and that what really distinguishes one from another is the narrative, or way the story of that tradition is told.

He further comments on the harm in confusing narrative with truth and imagining that any one faith can be the only real truth. How the confusion between narrative and truth even appears in science.

The willingness to own a measure of doubt in any religious narrative can liberate you from hostility toward others and make more coexistence possible.
