“Yearning for a Resolution that Won’t Come”

Here’s one of those surprising pieces that might be skipped because of the headline: The CNN town hall on gun control was a failure. And that’s good for our democracy.

This is less about the gun control debate and more about celebrating a conversation in which there are no “winners.” In fact, the writer thinks that these types of conversations might be better for our culture. The writer is advocating for conversations marked by “null results” because they have value outside of declaring winners and losers. Instead, she says, “they quietly build up the base on which progress depends.”

This understanding is key to the work of The Colossian Forum as we help people stay in difficult conversations and be personally (and powerfully!) transformed in them.

Read the whole article on the CNN town hall on gun control.

Thanks to Lou Huesmann, a partner in The Colossian Way, for alerting us to this article and crafting this intro.
