Amen! Amen! Amen! Although . . . are you correct when you say, "To hear what is good in those whose views or actions we oppose, and to speak into that in a way that can be heard . . . gains no popular attention and no new followers"--or, as you said a few paragraphs earlier, "is an excruciatingly slow path to internet renown"? Must it be that way?

Or, perhaps, you have pointed to the wisdom of Jesus' way, the way of relying upon faithfulness in the little things--the daily exercise regimen that takes place faithfully, behind the scenes, quietly, unseen . . . only to burst forth onto the world stage at the appropriate moment, when no one expects it. The one who has been faithful in the little is suddenly seen for his or her faithfulness in much.

I pray that such may be said of you.
