Just before the election several articles offered good advice for political discussions in the workplace. Whether you're mourning or rejoicing over the outcome, there's something to learn from these articles about discussing topics where strong feelings lurk below the surface. Humility and grace go a long way then talking about politics and faith. Those who want to build spiritual capital in the workplace need to be wise with our words. Otherwise we'll find our spiritual influence confounding rather than compounding interest.
