Better Conversations

Loving your neighbor, even when you disagree about politics.

We live in a polarized society in which neither “side” listens to the other. Families are being split apart, friendships are fractured, and even our church family finds it difficult to bridge the divide. This workshop faces controversial topics head-on by teaching the skills we all need for engaging in political discourse, not just rationally, but in a way that fosters love and understanding. You will learn:

  • How to redefine the “win,” and why persuasion is not the point
  • What a “better” conversation sounds like
  • How to apply ground rules and conversation helpers
  • The role of listening and empathy in the midst of controversy

This workshop is for opinionated people from the right, left, and center of political and social positions. We encourage you to attend and participate in the biblical mandate of peacemaking.

Cost: Free (Your freewill offering is welcome.) Includes lunch.
