Harnessing the power of disagreement to restore connection
Disagreement is everywhere, but when we see it as a win-lose scenario, we’ve already lost sight of the generative energy behind difference.
Whether our disagreements emerge over theological or cultural convictions or concerns around financial decisions or worship styles, these tensions can become threats to relationships and obstacles on our spiritual journeys. But what if we practiced the art of love in the face of frustration and fear instead?
The ongoing work of The Colossian Forum is designed to promote the health and sustainability of the Church in the face of intensifying polarization and division.
We do so by equipping Christians to recognize conflict’s inherent opportunities to actively pursue deeper relationships with neighbor and with God. Our mission is not to resolve conflict, but to transform our desires in the midst of disagreement in order to cultivate virtue, leading to a more effective witness to our world.
