Making sense . . .

Making sense involves

sharing and exploring

the significance of perceptions,

a capacity to question our clarity or truthfulness

in the light of communications from others

or

renewed engagement with what’s in front of us…

[Making sense means]

to make mistakes and to deal satisfactorily with them;

even to

suspend judgment

at certain points

because

we are aware of not having the conceptual or linguistic equipment

to enable decisions.

Rowan Williams, The Edge of Words: God and the Habits of Language 

(With liberties taken on line spacing)
