Each of us has her or his own way of dealing with anger. Process theology encourages us to share our experiences and reflect together about what we can learn from this interchange. Being asked this question gives me an occasion to participate in that discussion, sharing my current thinking as it has grown out of my own experience of anger and what others have taught me.

I appreciate this question. My answer is, of course, yes. If I did not think so, I would not have devoted so much of my time to process thought. But before I answer positively, I should acknowledge what process thought, by itself, certainly cannot do.
